Jacqueline Simon Gunn is a Manhattan-based clinical psychologist and writer. She has authored two non-fiction books, and co-authored two others. She has published many articles, both scholarly and mainstream, and currently works as a freelance writer. Gunn is now writing fiction in both the thriller and the romance genre.

Somewhere buried deep in my heart is a longing for you, for us, for all that has remained unfinished. I only wish that my heart understood the way my mind does, that some questions can never be answered, that some words need to remain unsaid, that some of our most significant relationships need to be severed. You are an echo in everything I touch, in all that I feel, in everything I do. The pla... Read more of this blog post »

“I think Dostoevsky was right, that every human being must have a point at which he stands against the culture, where he says, this is me and the damned world can go to hell.”
Rollo May
Forever and One Day by Jacqueline Simon Gunn
“Mistakes we make in the past sometimes keep us connected. Heartache keeps us connected. We want the past to be forgotten, to forget the people we’ve hurt and those who have hurt us and yet, it’s always there, in the periphery of our consciousness, because it has defined part of our life.
A part of who we are.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

"Once again, Simon Gunn brings us into the hearts and minds of her characters, but this time it's all romance and no murders. And she transitioned nicely to the new genre. She has a gift for letting the characters get caught up in their own lives a..." Read more of this review »

“Empty Spaces

I wanted to feel less.
To not be burdened by emotion,
To not feel sadness,
To not know loss.
I envied the inanimate,
The trees that stand proudly in winter,
Not missing their leaves.
I wanted to be weightless,
To not experience limitation.
I didn’t want time to pass,
The blur of days, months, years.
It moved too quickly,
I wanted to grasp on,
Hold it.
It eluded me,
Intangible,
Like light.
I wanted to preserve life before you were gone.
I didn’t want to know grief.

But the pain kept me connected.
It meant that I loved you,
It meant that I would always be a little broken,
It meant that our love filled all of the empty spaces.
It meant that you would be with me... forever.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“She averted his eyes, but not before he recognized the pain in them, a tormented and languished gaze, a stare preserved for people who were able to love deeply enough that they could be destroyed by it.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn, Noah's Story

“Sometimes the truth isn’t obvious; sometimes it exists in the silence, in the emptiness between the spaces, but we’re too afraid to hear it.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn, Circle of Betrayal

“He was footprints in the snow.

Not all loves are meant to last.
Some are meant to grace you briefly,
before fading,
somehow leaving the impression
that the world is just a little bit better
because you had been touched by
something so beautiful it was impossible
to grasp.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“Sometimes the closer you are to the truth, the harder it is to see.”
