Associations

Guy has/is associated with several not-for-profit associations in the Ottawa area. He once provided his graphic design and web services.


He had a column in a local crime writing newsletter. He is proud being associated with Capital Crime Writers; Crime Writers of Canada; Bloody Words; Ottawa Romance Writers; and Ottawa Therapy Dogs.

Through my writing associations I had the pleasure of meeting many published Canadian authors with books on the New York Best Sellers list. Some even write for the TV crime shows like CSI. I am in awe of the work these published Canadian authors have produced. I do follow and am associated with hundreds of published authors whether Canadian, American, or from abroad.

I sat on the executive steering committee for the 2009 Bloody Words Crime Writing conference. I was mostly responsible for their print and web communication products. The event was supported by the City of Ottawa and the Canadian Art Council of the Arts.

I do love writing. I do have a few published articles in these associations’ newsletter or web sites.
I am very proud being associated with very talented people. I had the pleasure of working with leaders in their professions. Some of my old colleagues like Katherine Baillon Powers is now the VP of Communications for a company larger than Microsoft. Rosemary Walsh is now the speech writer for United Way. Katherine Hobbs resided on Ottawa’s City Council. Others went to teach in our local universities and colleagues.
These are but a few people I have had the pleasure of working with or still being associated with for some now decades.

If you follow Guy on Facebook you will often see the name Vicki Delany, Mary Jane Maffini, and Victoria Abbott TAGGED on posts.

 

  • About
  • Mary Jane Maffini

    Mary Jane to me is very special. She is a member of several of the same associations I’ve been involved with over the last decade or so. Not only is she a published Canadian crime writer with an alias pen name but she is also a volunteer for Ottawa Therapy Dogs (OTD). She was also seen walking in the Ottawa pride parade.


    It takes a special kinda lady to be able to be active in so many share associations. She has two adorable dogs that she brings on her OTD tours around Ottawa in varied institutions. She was recently featured on the Ottawa Morning TV show that my Twitter friend Dylan Black hosts.

    He have been social media friends for several years on both Facebook and Twitter.
    The world would be a better place with more people like Mary Jane. Bravo MJ for helping people in your community through animal assisted therapy and for being such a great lady with great writing skills that I admire and being involved with so many similar associations I greatly admire and respect.

    It’s the common interests that made us cross our paths on our individual roads of life.

    I honestly believe that no other human is better or above another human.

    I highlighted and listed a few people that I highly respect and admire. Most are doing exactly what they LOVE to do and are or have succeeded.

    I bet if you asked any of these people they’d all say they followed their own roads and paths.

    These to me are the leaders, role models, and mentors I had/have in my life at the moment.

    Interesting Facts…


    It’s in you to give! Is the official tagline for the Canadian Blood Services. It was a former colleague from my Telecom Canada days by the name of Diane Descoste Johnson that came up with that tagline.

    I would never have met these artists had I not looked them up after hearing them on Jump 106.9 in Ottawa.
