Ciji Ware


In addition to the novella “The Ring of Kerry Hannigan,” Ciji Ware is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of eight novels and two nonfiction works. She is the daughter, niece, and descendant of writers (including William Ware, author of the historical romance Zenobia, 1836; Henry Ware, author of On the Formation of the Christian Character, 1831), so the writing profession is just part of the "family business."

Among her many accolades, she has been honored with the Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence and a Romantic Times Award for Best Fictionalized Biography for Island of the Swans, and as a result of that book, was made a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (FSA Scot), a tribute she treasures. In 2012, she was a finalist in the prestigious WILLA (Cather) Literary Award for A Race to Splendor.

Ware is also an Emmy-award winning television producer, former radio and TV on-air broadcaster for KABC in Los Angeles, as well as a print and online journalist. She received a BA in History from Harvard University and has the distinction of being the first woman graduate of Harvard College to serve as the President of the Harvard Alumni Association, Worldwide.

When your heart speaks, will you listen? This trio of romantic and inspiring tales imagines the lives of three San Francisco women transformed by the iconic Claddagh ring—the timeless Irish symbol of love, friendship, and fidelity worn not only by Jackie Kennedy and Princess Grace, but by scores of citizens and firefighters who fought their last battle in New York’s Twin Towers on 9/11.
