Agatha Miller was born in Torquay, England on September 15, 1890. After marrying Colonel Archibald Christie at age 23 she got the surname she's made so famous.
Christie spent more than fifty years writing, and has produced 79 novels and short story collections. Her most famous character is the bright, little detective Hercule Poirot.
On January 12, 1976, Agatha Christie passed away.
An interesting thing about Agatha Christie is that she actually had dyslexia but despite that fact she managed to write stories and eventually become who fans call Queen of Crime.
