Agatha Miller married Archie Christie. They had a daughter together, Rosalind. I just looked up the significant bit in the autobiography about Archie (she put in an index, so looked up "Christie, Archibald, estrangement and divorce"!) where she says that he fell in love with another woman and wanted a divorce. She did disappear for some time - but in the introduction to her Autobiography the publishers specifically state that she doesn't say anything about the disappearance in it. It's all speculation. There was a movie done about her disappearance as I recall. She later married archaeologist Max Mallowan.
She wrote 68 novels, more than 100 short stories, 17 plays and published in 103 languages.
#5 cmbohn - her autobiography spent quite a bit of time on her childhood and courtship too.
There's obviously a lot she left unsaid, including the disappearance and other references to Max Mallowan's infidelities and eventual marriage to his mistress Barbara Parker a year after Christie died. But, everybody's entitled to their privacy. I do think her marriage to Max was good. Just, perhaps on his part, not exclusive.
There are lots of biographies of AC. I checked Amazon and found 8 without getting past the first page. I may or may not read one or more of them.
The only other official non-fiction she wrote was Come, Tell Me How You Live. With #4 tropics' recommendation, I'll be reading that soon.
