Alumni Success Story - Lymarie Jimenez, Apollo 2000

March 7, 2018

Lymarie Jimenez Lymarie Jimenez has the ability to transport anyone to a dystopian future 200 years from now where the world is highly technologically advanced. This Apollo High School 2000 graduate and published author has the talent for capturing readers and taking them through the twists and turns of conspiracies and secrets.

Her first published book, “Awaken” takes the reader on a journey of uncovering city secrets and finding that things aren’t always as they seem.

Jimenez completed a Bachelor’s Degree in English Writing and Literature from St. Cloud State University (SCSU). Her mother was a Spanish professor at SCSU who had a passion for writing and has written several books herself.

“I dub myself the English version of her,” says Jimenez. “It started off as a bucket list thing. I challenged myself to write a novel. I’ve always had ideas in my head, but I’d never committed to it. A lot of people say, ‘I’m going to write a novel someday.’ I just decided I was going to do it.”

Fantasy books that are complex are her favorite kind of books to read. In fact, “Jurassic Park” is her favorite book and it inspired her first book “Awaken” under her pen name Georgina Kane. Read the full story.
