6. Agatha Christie

The Queen of Mystery remains one of the best-selling writers of all time–her estate claims she’s only outsold by Shakespeare and the Bible.

Recommended reading: And Then There Were None.

7. Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende was the daughter of a Chilean diplomat and grew up in South America, Europe, and the Middle East.
