Jemi Fraser – Love Is Always Worth The Risk

Jemi Fraser writes romantic suspense filled with hope, heart, and humour. Her stories combine her love of mystery with the satisfaction of a Happy Ever After. Love is always worth the risk.

NO BED OF ROSES – His call sign might be Oz, but his yellow brick road is leading him to Phail!

Jemi also writes about the way dementia has impacted her family. Love and humour go a long way to help everyone cope with the disease.

Before turning her hand to writing, Jemi spent a few decades teaching students to love each other, words, and math.

Armed with a mug of tea and freshly-baked cookies, Jemi is living out her own HEA in beautiful Northern Ontario (Canada).


My first published book was Dancing With Dementia: Recognizing and Coping with the Early Stages of Dementia.

The star of the book is Lizzie. I used an alternate name for Mom to protect her privacy but the stories in the book are all real.

Lizzie was a firecracker – from her early days growing up in Aberdeen throughout WWII to her time in a local nursing home where she was often the highlight of the day for many people.

Dementia is a cruel and nasty disease. The last few weeks have been difficult for Lizzie as she mostly lost contact with the world around her. She was put into palliative care and fell into a peaceful sleep. She passed away Monday morning without experiencing any pain.

Lizzie was known for her sense of humour, her adventurous spirit, her oh-so-colourful language, and her big heart. We will miss her sass, her spunk, and her stories.

Sleep well, Lizzie. Sleep well.


“I can’t recommend this book enough to those families touched by the devastation of dementia. If you have a loved one suffering from dementia, read this book.”
