Celebrating Agatha Christie's 125th

The Queen of the Mystery Writers Born 9/15/1890

Today we celebrate the 125th anniversary of the birth of the enormously prolific British mystery writer Agatha Christie, born September 15, 1890. 

Christie’s works have been published worldwide, translated into a multitude of languages, and she is, according to Guinness Book of World’s Records, the best-selling mystery author of all time.  Her works have been published in books, magazines, made into films, plays, and television series.  One of her most popular detectives, Miss Jane Marple, has appeared in several BBC series, portrayed by at least three different actresses.  Another of her beloved detectives, the endearingly fussy little Belgian-born, Hercule Poirot, has also been featured in a long-running BBC series. Read more about Christie, her life, her work, and the worldwide celebrations at

I began reading Agatha Christie’s mysteries while in high school.  This led me to read other mystery authors.  Among my favorites are Dorothy L. Sayers’ Lord Peter Whimsey stories and G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown novels.

Off all Christie’s mystery novels, I’d say that my favorite is And Then There Were None.  What’s your favorite?
