During the First World War she married Archibald Christie and volunteered as a pharmacist. After starting her writing career with The Mysterious Affair at Styles she broke with Colonel Christie but kept his name. She wrote 90 Agatha Christie titles, six romances as Mary Westmacott, five books, including her autobiography, as Agatha Christie Mallowan, and 19 stage plays. She is the best selling novelist of all time. Her works have been translated into more languages than any other author's (not as many as the Bible, but more than Shakespeare). Her play The Mousetrap holds the all-time record for longest running stage play with 8,862 performances over 21 years.
