Agatha Christie (1890-1976)
Agatha Christie, honored with the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, is one of the most popular writers of all time and her books are outsold worldwide only by the Bible. She was born in the town of Torquay, Devon, England and raised by her mother and stepfather, and she had two older step-siblings - Margaret and Louis. Agatha worked as a nurse during the First World War, and then in 1914 married aviator Archibald Christie; they had a daughter, Rosalind, but their marriage was tumultuous and they divorced in 1928. Two years later she married an archaeologist, Max Mallowan, and had a much happier marriage with him up until the very time of her death. Christie is most celebrated for her mystery novels, but she also wrote romances (many with psychological aspects) under the pen name of Mary Westmacott.
