DailyMail: Her steamy, bestselling novels and strong male characters have seduced hundreds of thousands of female readers worldwide. But Jodi Ellen Malpas has revealed she has split from her own Mr. Right – because he no longer lives up to the fantasy she created. The 34-year-old, whose This Man trilogy has sold more than 500,000 copies, has left her husband of ten years after ‘falling in love’ with one of her characters.
Ms. Malpas, from Northampton, says: ‘All my fictional men are strong, successful, sophisticated and enigmatic. I guess it’s hard for any living, breathing man to live up to such a fantasy. ‘In This Man I created Jesse Ward, whose forceful personality was appealing to me. There is no denying I fell in love with him. After all, I created him and I made him the way he is for a reason. Every woman needs some fantasy lover to spice up the dull reality of her real life. I wanted to create my perfect love story.’
But the success of my books and the popularity of my male character led to the breakdown of my marriage. Sadly it was not solid enough to withstand the changes success has brought to my life.’
The mother of two, whom many believe is the new E. L. James, the housewife who wrote the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy, became a self-publishing sensation last year, swiftly rising to the top of the New York Times Best Seller List.
The This Man trilogy explores the love affair between young interior designer Ava O’Shea and playboy Jesse Ward. The second part of her new trilogy, One Night, has just been published by Orion.
‘I was 23 when Aaron and I got married, so we were both very young,’ she says. ‘I didn’t really know who I was. I got on with being a wife and mother.’
But over time I started to feel that something was missing – my normal everyday life had become a routine. I was bored. I guess that is what couples mean when they say they’ve grown apart. Aaron couldn’t understand why I wanted to write my fiction and I couldn’t understand why he didn’t understand.’
The couple have two children, Alfie, 14, and Patrick, ten. But although they divorced in August last year, Ms. Malpas says their relationship remains amicable. She is currently single and insists that she has no time to get involved in a relationship.
‘My children and my writing are enough for the moment,’ she adds. ‘In any case, I suspect some men might be a little intimidated by my independence and my success.’
And she insists she has no regrets. ‘It’s been crazy, but I’m loving the stronger more liberated me,’ she says.

  1. This is so gross. That any woman would be seduced in her mind to give up a real man, warts and all–for some figment of anyone’s imagination. Methinks the lady has a screw loose!

  2. Cheryl Smith-Bell

    Me thinks she bought into her own FICTION! Definitely will Not buy these books!

  3. As a man or woman stinketh in their heart, so they are. :~D

  4. As another man who couldn’t possibly live up to any of these fantasies, I would like to warn her that throwing away your loving life partner is an action that will lead to terrible heart ache.

  5. Anyone want to bet on whether this woman is liberal or conservative?
    I think a strong conservative woman will always prefer the reality of a good man, flaws and all, over a non-existant fiction, but liberals always want to live in a world of unattainable fantasies, no matter who gets hurt.
    It seems to me that Ms. Malpas loves nobody so much as she loves herself.

    • You got THAT right! She needs to get over herself. Anyone who would do that to her loving husband for a self-designed fantasy is no prize for ANY man. She doesn’t even have good looks to carry her through,once the “writer thing” winds down to a stop.

  6. Dear Ms. Malpas,
    What makes you think your “fantasy hunk” finds *you* attractive?

    • yeah, she needs to look in the mirror for a reality check…I honestly thought she was a male before I read she had 2 children.

  7. He HAS to,or she’ll erase and re-write him until he DOES.

  8. Stupid woman. Stupid wife. Stupid mother. I will pray for them.

  9. Can we say the author is a shallow minded , !@#$%^&*()_+=-09876 , you get the idea .

  10. Malpas sounds like the typical femme here in New York City!

  11. She has the same mindset of gamers who get caught up in their virtual reality. She fell in lust with her idea (same as she fell in llust with herself) and let go of reality. Is she really successful? She has $$$ in her accounts and her fictional “man”….she also has a divorce, no intact home, a cold bed (“Mr. Virtual” can’t warm that) children who no longer have a mother and father at home. She would have been better off praying to Jesus to help rid her mind of the vile thoughts from satan that her husband and marriage weren’t good enough than writing that garbage.
    This is what’s missing from our world today: Jesus is first, others are second, I am third.

    • This is an example of one of the devil’s oldest tricks, using worthless illusion to rob things of real value from people. This woman has thrown away Love, in favor of some worthless non-existent, and in doing so she throws out priceless treasure in exchange for nothing. Not only is that mentally ill by any standard, it shows she has taken up the devil’s usual offer. She should get right with God and get back with her husband before she makes any more grave mistakes, even if it means having to burn the paper incubus she cooked up for herself, and forfeiting her fortune, because Real Love is worth more than a bestseller mark or the green devil called money.
      You are right in that this is a bad trend, in Japan and the U.S. alike people fawn over CGI creations cooked up from videogames and books, ignoring what really matters, because the fantasy is what they want (Ms. pixel breasts won’t ever say no, mr. paper biceps will always swoop out of nowhere, etc.), not what they Need. Until they realize that, things will continue to go down hill for those who choose fakery over real reality. Let anyone else who reads this take it as a stark warning against becoming a “fangirl” or “fanboy”, and avoid the push of pop culture to remain a teen/tween for as long as possible, because that will cost them their life and happiness.
