Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history.

    Great Christmas Reading

    What a lovely book to read over the holidays. Even if you just have a few minutes, the stories and poems are inspiring snippets to put you in the spirit of the season.

    Another side to Dame Agatha

    When you hear the name Agatha Christie, you immediately expect a crime story, a clever whodunit. This collection of poems and stories is something rarer, a glimpse into another facet of her imagination. All of the stories have Christian theme, a simply human feel, and deep wisdom beneath. The first two stories are Christmas stories. "In the Cool of the Evening" startled me when it dipped its toe into science fiction. There's a lot to be delighted and surprised by here, and an inner glow reminiscent of the spirituality in the fiction of G.K. Chesterton, Madeleine L'Engle, or Dorothy Sayers.
