Agatha Christie was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the sixty-six detective novels and fourteen short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple, Parker Pyne, Harley Quin/Mr Satterthwaite, and Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. She wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap. In 1971, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace for her contribution to literature. Read More on wikipedia.
