Agatha Christie the Queen of Mysteries Novels and author of And Then There Were None, used both types of conflicts and irony to teach the theme that justice will be served. Christie became the first grandmaster recognized by the Mystery Writers of America.
Born as Agatha Christie May Clarissa Miller in Devon of England. Agatha was born September 15, 1890. She was raised in a seaside town in Devon called Torquay. Christie was the youngest of the family and was most likely alone a lot. Because of her loneliness she was very imaginative by creating playmates that to only her was real as people (“Christie, Agatha”, 176; Stade and Karbiener, 76).
While growing up Christie was home schooled privately. She was home schooled right after her father, Fredrick Alvah Miller died. Her teacher was her mother, Clarissa Boehmer Miller. Along with being taught by her mother, her mother also encouraged her to write and read more often. If she was home and had nothing to do her mother would make her write a story. That’s what helped Christie become a good writer. Christie thought it was better to think about a story then writing because it was easier. Later in her teenage years Christie went to school in Paris for music then realized she didn’t have that opera voice (Stade and Karbiener, 76; Kunitz, 279).
Christie first husband was a pilot named Colonel Archibald Christie. They had a daughter, Rosalind Christie. While Christie’s husband was flying she was working as a nurse for the Red Cross Torquay during World War I. In 1928 Mr. and Mrs. Christie divorced and then she remarried a short term later to an archeologist, Max Mallowan. Christie and her husband traveled on a lot of trips to Syria and to Iraq just for fun. While she went on trips she sent her daughter to boarding school. When holidays and birthdays came she would come home to celebrate, and then went back to traveling with her husband (Stade and Karbiener 76; “Christie, Agatha”, 176).
Along with traveling Christie had other hobbies as well. Her main hobby was purchasing homes, furnishing them, live in them for a short period of time, and then just sell them. She loved writing in the desert because it was so quiet and there were no distractions, but when not writing she would help with the photography for the odyssey. She like the sun, trying strange food, swimming, going to the theatres, concerts, doing embroidery, cooking, flowers, reading, playing tennis, playing the piano, traveling, and go out into the sea. She doesn’t like the traveling by the sea when she is feeling sick. She also doesn’t like or her dislikes are the taste of alcohol and smoking. She hates crowds, wireless, gramophones, loud noises, and cinemas (kunitz, 280).
