About Shawe Ruckus

Shawe Ruckus is an author of urban mysteries and YA science fantasy, in which cold cases and legendary creatures take centre stage.


Shawe is a globetrotter born in Inner Mongolia. Having woven a rich tapestry of experiences from her diverse residencies—including China, the UK, Austria, South Korea, Switzerland, and Japan—Shawe brings a unique medley of humour, bad humour, suspense, and slices of everyday life to her stories.

Having attended King's College London and the University of Cambridge, Shawe also took courses at the International Space University, where she acquired much useful technical knowledge for her writing. She was a student at the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries in London, where Agatha Christie learned how to poison.

Her first book in the Mercenaries in Suits series was shortlisted for the 2023 Readers' Favorite Book Award in the Urban Fiction category. Shawe was also recognized as 1 of 15 sci-fi writers shortlisted for the Eighth Masters of the Future Award in China.

When not writing, Shawe Ruckus indulges in culinary adventures, offers mentorship sessions to inspiring entrepreneurs to 'hunt' their next unicorn, and persistently attempts to cultivate a green thumb.
