Nicholas Cathy Sparks

Nicholas Sparks, the author who is famous for his everlasting love themed novels has proven that true love doesn’t last forever after all.

Unlike Noah and Allie (the main characters from Sparks’ famous romance novel turned movie, “The Notebook”), Sparks won’t be getting his happy ending as he divorced his wife, Cathy Sparks with whom he had been married for 25 years.

“Cathy and I have separated. This is, of course, not a decision we’ve made lightly. We remain close friends with deep respect for each other and love for our children. For our children’s sake, we regard this as a private matter,” Sparks said to People magazine.

The 49-year-old American novelist, screenwriter and producer has penned and published seventeen romance novels where nine of them, including “The Notebook” have been adapted into films.

Sparks married his wife in 1989 and both of them have three sons and twin daughters, ranging from 23 to 12 in age.

In an eHarmony interview back in 2012, Sparks confessed, “All of the female characters I create have many elements of my wife,” and ironically, many of them have found their happy ending in his books.

Probably after this, there will be no more happy ending in Sparks’ next book.
