        I grew up in Edmonton and Calgary I started writing horse stories when I was 11 and historical fiction during my high school years In 1976 I returned to Saskatoon to attend university and graduated in 1980 with an education degree My first teaching assignment was in Lampman, and I have pretty much been there ever since I didn t have much time for writing during the 80 s because I was too busy getting married, finishing a BA, teaching middle years at Estevan Junior High, and raising two wonderful daughters However, in 1996 I was asked to write a student production, and the floodgates opened Thirty plays later, I am still writing for students and for my adult community theatre troupe in Lampman In 1999, I started a YA manuscript about girls hockey which Coteau Books published as Power Plays in 2007 Face Off 2010 and Breakaway 2012 followed Baker s Plays has published two plays Sam Spud, Private Eye 2007 and The Banes of Darkwood 2010 After 25 years in the classroom, I called it quits and started working for my husband in the oil industry In my free time, I love to read and write, hang out at rinks and ball diamonds, golf, ski, ride my motorcycle and of course talk about writing

    1. I swear I really am Canadian, born and raised, but I have to confess: I don’t get hockey. I’m not a big sports-watcher in general. So I can say with authority that a knowledge of or interest in the game is not required to enjoy Maureen Ulrich’s first book in the Jessie Mac trilogy, Power Play, about a not-entirely-likeable teenager navigating the treacherous waters of high school and team sports.I had mixed feelings about Jessie while reading this book, and my ultimately positive take on h [...]

    3. Power Plays, by Maureen Ulrich, is a lovely read. I finally got around to finishing it last evening. It's the first of a trilogy. I cared about her main character, Jessie. Small town life alienates Jessie when her dad's career forces a move from Saskatoon to Estevan. Small-town teenage shenanigans alienate her to the point where a fledgling girls' hockey team is her only outlet. Even Jessie isn't sure how her hockey debut is going to work out. The hockey team, too, is on shaky ground. The player [...]


    4. A very solid book. Jessie's reactions to everything difficult - the bullying, her loneliness, etc. - by covering up and pretending to be ok is very realistic. Some of the secondary characters were a little flat but at least many of them were active, strong girls - Kathy Parker was my favorite, probably because she has an immense temper and plays rough and I certainly relate to that in a sporting context. Ulrich does a great job in describing hockey plays accurately but without drawing them out t [...]
