The English writer Agatha Christie or English writer Agatha Christie
The articles of the English language are a bit confusing for those whose language doesn't have them :).
I understand that there are different situations, but usually you don't use 'the' and 'a/an' before people's names. However, when you say, for example, 'English writer Agatha Christie', when do you put 'the' before it and when you don't do that? :) I usually say 'the English writer Agatha Christie', but I'm not sure whether I'm right.
