Who is Agatha Christie?

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, is a british writer, one who doesn’t really needs an introduction. She is, after all, according to The Guinness World Records, the best-selling fiction writer of all time, her novels having sold more than two billion copies. And she wrote numerous books, some with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, other mystery novels and stories under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott.

And yet, success didn’t arrive immediatly for Agatha Christie, with six consecutive rejections until this changed in 1920 when The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring detective Hercule Poirot, was published. The rest, as we say, is history, making her the “Duchess of Death”, the “Mistress of Mystery”, and the “Queen of Crime”.
