Her first husband was Archibald Christie ; they married in and had one child before divorcing in During both World Wars, she served in hospital dispensaries, acquiring a thorough knowledge of the poisons which featured in many of her novels, short stories, and plays.
Following her marriage to archaeologist Max Mallowan in , she spent several months each year on digs in the Middle East and used her first-hand knowledge of his profession in her fiction.

Fred was born in New York City and travelled extensively after leaving his Swiss boarding school. According to Christie, Clara believed she should not learn to read until she was eight; thanks to her curiosity, she was reading by age four.
As a result, her parents and sister supervised her studies in reading, writing, and basic arithmetic, a subject she particularly enjoyed.
They also taught her music, and she learned to play the piano and the mandolin. Christie was a voracious reader from an early age.
Among her earliest memories were reading children's books by Mrs Molesworth and Edith Nesbit. When a little older, she moved on to the surreal verse of Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll.
By , her father's health had deteriorated, because of what he believed were heart problems. The family's financial situation had by this time worsened.

Christie attended many dances and other social functions; she particularly enjoyed watching amateur polo matches. While they visited some ancient Egyptian monuments such as the Great Pyramid of Giza , she did not exhibit the great interest in archaeology and Egyptology that developed in her later years.
She also helped put on a play called The Blue Beard of Unhappiness with female friends. At eighteen, Christie wrote her first short story, "The House of Beauty", while recovering in bed from an illness.
It consisted of about 6, words on "madness and dreams", a subject of fascination for her. Her biographer, Janet Morgan , has commented that, despite "infelicities of style", the story was "compelling".
These included " The Call of Wings " and "The Little Lonely God". Magazines rejected all her early submissions, made under pseudonyms including Mac Miller, Nathaniel Miller, and Sydney West ; some submissions were later revised and published under her real name, often with new titles.
Around the same time, Christie began work on her first novel, Snow Upon the Desert. Writing under the pseudonym Monosyllaba, she set the book in Cairo and drew upon her recent experiences there.

The son of a barrister in the Indian Civil Service , Archie was an army officer who was seconded to the Royal Flying Corps in April The couple quickly fell in love.
Three months after their first meeting, Archie proposed marriage, and Agatha accepted. With the outbreak of World War I in August , Archie was sent to France to fight.

She wrote her first detective novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles , in It featured Hercule Poirot , a former Belgian police officer with "magnificent moustaches" and a head "exactly the shape of an egg",  : 13 who had taken refuge in Britain after Germany invaded Belgium.
Christie's inspiration for the character came from Belgian refugees living in Torquay, and the Belgian soldiers she helped to treat as a volunteer nurse during the First World War.
After keeping the submission for several months, John Lane at The Bodley Head offered to accept it, provided that Christie change how the solution was revealed.
She did so, and signed a contract committing her next five books to The Bodley Head, which she later felt was exploitative.
Christie settled into married life, giving birth to her only child, Rosalind Margaret Clarissa later Hicks , in August at Ashfield. They still employed a maid.
A third novel, Murder on the Links , again featured Poirot, as did the short stories commissioned by Bruce Ingram , editor of The Sketch magazine, from In , the Christies joined an around-the-world promotional tour for the British Empire Exhibition , led by Major Ernest Belcher.
Leaving their daughter with Agatha's mother and sister, in ten months they travelled to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and Canada.
When they returned to England, Archie resumed work in the city, and Christie continued to work hard at her writing. After living in a series of apartments in London, they bought a house in Sunningdale , Berkshire, which they renamed Styles after the mansion in Christie's first detective novel.
Christie's mother, Clarissa Miller , died in April They had been exceptionally close, and the loss sent Christie into a deep depression.
In August , Archie asked Agatha for a divorce. He had fallen in love with Nancy Neele, a friend of Major Belcher. Late that evening, Christie disappeared from their home.
The following morning, her car, a Morris Cowley , was discovered at Newlands Corner , parked above a chalk quarry with an expired driving licence and clothes inside.
The disappearance quickly became a news story, as the press sought to satisfy their readers' "hunger for sensation, disaster, and scandal".
More than a thousand police officers, 15, volunteers, and several aeroplanes searched the rural landscape. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle gave a spirit medium one of Christie's gloves to find her.
The next day, Christie left for her sister's residence at Abney Hall , Cheadle, where she was sequestered "in guarded hall, gates locked, telephone cut off, and callers turned away".
Christie's autobiography makes no reference to the disappearance. Some, including her biographer Morgan, believe she disappeared during a fugue state.
In January , Christie, looking "very pale", sailed with her daughter and secretary to Las Palmas , Canary Islands, to "complete her convalescence",  returning three months later.
Archie married Nancy Neele a week later. Reflecting on the period in her autobiography, Christie wrote, "So, after illness, came sorrow, despair and heartbreak.

In , a thallium poisoning case was solved by British medical personnel who had read Christie's book and recognised the symptoms she described.
The British intelligence agency MI5 investigated Christie after a character called Major Bletchley appeared in her thriller N or M? The agency's fears were allayed when Christie told her friend, the codebreaker Dilly Knox , "I was stuck there on my way by train from Oxford to London and took revenge by giving the name to one of my least lovable characters.
Christie was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in From to , Christie's health began to fail, but she continued to write.
Her last novel was Postern of Fate in In , Christie said of herself: "My chief dislikes are crowds, loud noises, gramophones and cinemas.
I dislike the taste of alcohol and do not like smoking. I do like sun, sea, flowers, travelling, strange foods, sports, concerts, theatres, pianos, and doing embroidery.
Christie's works of fiction contain some objectionable character stereotypes , but in real life, many of her biases were positive.
After four years of war-torn London, Christie hoped to return some day to Syria, which she described as a "gentle fertile country and its simple people, who know how to laugh and how to enjoy life; who are idle and gay, and who have dignity, good manners, and a great sense of humour, and to whom death is not terrible".
Christie was a lifelong, "quietly devout"  : member of the Church of England , attended church regularly, and kept her mother's copy of The Imitation of Christ by her bedside.
The Agatha Christie Trust For Children was established in ,  and shortly after Christie's death a charitable memorial fund was set up to "help two causes that she favoured: old people and young children".

She said she had more fun writing plays than writing books. Christie wrote so many novels some say she lost count. She was named a Dame of the British Empire in There is speculation that Agatha suffered from dementia in her later years even though she kept writing.

There is an increasing preoccupation with older people in her writing, especially the novels Elephants Can Remember, and Postern of Fate.

It featured perhaps her best-known character, Hercule Poirot. He was a Belgian detective in many of her books. This character was so popular, and some say so well written, that he is mentioned in textbooks that teach crime scene analysis.
Another character Christie used in novels was Miss Jane Marple. Like Poirot, this character has had significant impact. Of her novels that were made into films, two stand out: Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile.
The latter was even made into a video game. Murder on the Orient Express is perhaps her most famous piece. It has been a novel, a play, a movie, a TV movie, and a radio show.
In addition to her detective stories, Christie is the author of many poems, and some romances.
