100 Years of Agatha

Posted by on Aug 3, 2020 in Things I Love | 0 comments

This year is the 100th Anniversary of Agatha Christie’s first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. It is also the first novel starring her famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot.
When I was in England in 2014, I was able to see Styles (streetview only because it’s a private residence). Apparently, it was a home Agatha Christie either lived in or visited prior to writing the novel in 1920.
Agatha Christie is my primary influence as a writer and also as a student of human nature.  Her books have stood the test of time because her characters and their motivations are universal.  
Happy Anniversary, Styles!
