writer-woman asked: Is it true that you sent Captain Hastings to Argentina because you wanted to get rid of him? Why would you want to get rid of him? He's one of my favorite characters of all time!
Alas dear reader, Captain Hastings went to Argentina because he had very important business to attend to. The only person I would care to send anywhere to get rid of is Monsieur Poirot.
While accompanying my dearest Jade to work today I can’t help but think of a line from the great Sir Doyle that applies very much to her students:
“You see, but you do not observe.”
When life gives you lemons …
… slice them up with a nice cup of hot tea, barricade yourself in your room, and lose yourself in a sensational mystery novel.
I was quite looking forward to the thunderstorms promised me this evening as inspiration to write, but it seems I am just going to get muggy, grey clouds. Alas, one cannot always rely on weather. One has to make one’s own inspiration.
mstimelord-deactivated20120929 asked: I've never read your novels, which one should I start out on?
My Dear Cyborgism,
Never? Really? Well, I would suggest _And Then There Were None_. Quite my best work if I do say so myself. I believe your dear friend Jade has a copy; she has quite a library, and I’m sure she would be charmed to lend it to you.
Looking forward to your thoughts on my most popular non-Hercule Poirot novel. I see that your Tumblr is filled with Sherlock, you’ll love my work, I was heavily inspired by Poe and Sir Arthur, dear man.
Anonymous asked: What do you mean limit questions about me? I am the best creation you ever made!! - Hercule Poirot
You, sir, are a formidable detective, but a miserable human being and fictional character. You are dreary, dull, annoying, pompous, over bearing, stuffy, and over dressed. I, as your creator, wish you to bugger off.
Harass me again and I will not be held responsible for my actions.
~ A. Christie, your creator
It seems the prodigious Mr. E. A. Poe has recently graced Tumblr with his presence and thus started a trend amongst the rest of us literary persons. I wish to create a charming and intriguing environment in which literature enthusiasts of all sorts may ask questions and debate with, and I flatter myself, the first female mystery author. Just please limit your number of questions regarding Hercule Poirot. I wish I could strangle that Belgian monomaniac myself.
