I married one of my fans and she doesn't even know it

Do I even owe it to her to tell her? I am an anonymous author writing under a pen name.

I started my own fan club for my book series because I began developing a cult following on a particular forum anyway. There was a handful of meetups. I founded it but it was managed by some of my fans, and I would just dip in and out from the background. Nobody knew it was me.

During one of the meetups, I met a girl, and we got to know each other better. I am usually not that successful with girls, probably struggling from depression, but we clicked somehow. I am more surprised that she actually liked me back. It didn't hurt that she liked my work too.

Nobody in my immediate life knew that I wrote, so there isn't really a way my wife would've found out through friends or family anyway. For all she knows, I am just have a regular day job and like playing tennis on my off time.

I have some money coming in from the books, but I manage the finance for most part and she doesn't really check, and the deposits aren't in our shared joint account. It's been like 3 years of marriage.

I don't want to tell her I am the writer. She has a certain image of the writer and I don't want to break it. Also it would be weird as frick.

    this reads and makes about as much sense as a redditor's "Am I The butthole" fiction story

    Only way out now is to use the situation in your next novel, base a female character on your wife, she inadvertently marries her favourite writer but he turns out to be a violent serial rapist and one day, as part of his rape ritual, he writes a novel about his wife marrying her favourite rapist who turns out to be a novelist.

    In the rapist's novel, let's call it 'Homage to Frottage', the wife finds that she herself is her favourite novel, and in that novel, let's call it 'To Mock a Killing Bird', there is a famous rapist who marries a novelist based on a chapter in the novel that is your wife.

    The rapist has writer's block and so his wife writes his next novel for him, however this compromises his virility and he has to go on an epic roadtrip with his best friend (played by Will Ferrell) to attend his bookclub's 3 year anniversary, where he will rape all his fans in one last attempt to recapture his muse and rekindle his love for adventure.

    You should think of this rape novel as your Swann's Way, merely the first volume in an attempt to recapture something special, something you've lost. In subsequent volumes you will weave a Proustian web of intrigue, social commentary, high art, rape, in which everyone you know will be both character and potential narrator, you will drive your neighbours, family, friends, random acquaintances to murder as each sees themselves gruesomely portrayed in fiction, and each could well be a stand in for the real author. They will come to you, howling, waving your atrocious masterpiece, asking if Bud or Janey or Mike from Accounting is the author, the depraved rape-obsessed genius, and if so how should revenge be enacted. You will smile, patting your belly, and offer just enough advice to set up the greatest mass murder /rape in history, as everyone you know simultaneously snaps and attacks everyone else, and all the while no one will suspect that you were the writer, the genius, the monster.

    If you write the book as the moron virgins itt are advising, she will be disillusioned with the relationship and call you out for cheating. Cheating for women is multivariate, it doesn't need to involve sex. She will tell this to her mother or friends who will incite her against you. She will find reasons to overthink why you lied, what kind of money you are making, who you told before her, how much money you have stashed behind her back and whatever else you have lied to her about. This idea will transform into a full blown need for revenge. It will make her unsatisfied and she will look for and find a reason to cheat on you. And when you ask her why she did this, she will tell you that you lied to her first as the excuse. Don't be stupid anon. Planting these kinds of ideas on women never ends well. Do your best to maintain anonymity and hope that when she finds out through no fault of your own, she will be smart enough to ignore it and assume you don't know she knows, that's what smart people do. Women are fricking crazy and its really telling how little men understand about them and how they find new ways of sabotaging their relationships because of some naive notion of maintaining some idealistic concept of equality.

    Assuming this isn't a larp if you tell her then you are asking for a divorce. Female would divorce you either because she romanticized the books in her head and you ruined her fantasy, or because you ruptured her concept of your identity.

    It's a fun premise. I think if you expanded it, the story would be popular with romance readers. But you might want to scale it back to a self-published author in a very specific niche who has a boring desk job. It's just unrealistic that a successful author is writing multiple books without his wife knowing what his job is.
