There is a most interesting and well illustrated article in the current Smithsonian magazine (June) about the most successful novelist of all time, Agatha Christie. I recommend it to all writers for an insight into her
life. Her lovely manor house "Greenway" where she spent so many years, inspired scenes in several of her novels, but she seldom wrote there. It was her secluded escape. What was it in this amazing woman that created the likes of the Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot and the lovable spinster British sleuth, Jane Marple. Perhaps this question would be a good topic for one of our sessions. What is that unique "something" that sets an Agatha Christie apart from everyday writers?
