In addition to her career as a novelist, CIJI WARE broadcast daily in Los Angeles as a reporter and commentator on radio and television for more than twenty years. The author of six published books, her numerous awards include an Emmy and a Dupont for her television work, a Silver Gavel for magazine journalism, and "Best Fictionalized Biography" from Romantic Times magazine for her first novel, ISLAND OF THE SWANS. In 1993, she was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, and in 2001 won a Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence in the coveted "Classics" category.

Ware's most recent novel from Random House/Ivy is A LIGHT ON THE VERANDA. She has also published the non-fiction work, SHARING PARENTHOOD AFTER DIVORCE.

Ciji Ware and her husband, Internet executive Tony Cook, live on Nob Hill in San Francisco, California in a Julia Morgan building designed by the architect of Hearst Castle. She is a graduate of Harvard University in history and served as the first woman graduate of the College to be President of the Harvard Alumni/ae Association. In 1995, her son Jamie also graduated from Harvard and currently works in the film industry as a cinematographer and editor.

Ware's late father, Harlan Ware, wrote the radio classic "One Man's Family," and was also a novelist, publishing with Random House. Her late uncles Leon Ware and Darrell Ware wrote novels and screenplays. Her ancestor, William Ware, was the author of ZENOBIA, published in 1898.

The research for Ware's novels that seamlessly interweave history and contemporary life have taken her to the Highlands of Scotland, Wales, England and Ireland; to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Natchez Mississippi, among many other destinations. Presently she is at work on a novel set closer to home in the tumultuous year following the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.
