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.

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.
