Rojé Augustin is a native New Yorker currently living in Sydney with her husband and two daughters. This after a three-year stint in London. So she is officially an ex-pat. Her husband is Australian, which is why she’s way the heck down under in the first place. She began her career as an editorial assistant at the New York Daily News, writing pieces for the lifestyle insert BET Weekend Magazine. She then moved to television, first at CBS New Productions where she cut her teeth on hour-long documentaries for cable, then to 20/20 with Barbara Walters and John Stossel, Primetime with Diane Sawyer and Good Morning America Weekend Edition as a writer and producer. She also freelanced for The Tyra Banks Show and E! She has recently begun developing television series through her production company in Sydney.
Rojé has lived and studied in both Paris and London and she is an honors graduate of Columbia University with a degree in literature & writing. Despite spending most of her professional life in television, which Rojé loves, she always returns to writing. The Unraveling of Bebe Jones is her first novel.
