Ho, ho, ho it’s the Christmas Season. We’re settled in Tucson and the weather is normal for the area. We’re sunny and getting a little cooler. They’re still putting our place back together – slowly – very slowly. I’m putting up the lights. I found a light-up 22” panda which I love. And I’ve started playing Christmas music.


NaNo was a bust this year. With everything else going on I didn’t get much done on Escape, the fourth book n the Hawkins’ Ranch series. Here’s a blurb for it.


Amy has suffered abuse for years. Finally, she decided it was escape or die. Now she’s running for her life and she doesn’t trust any man.


Gabe Hawkins, the oldest brother in the Hawkins family, has never found the right woman. His brothers are all happily married and he’s the only who is still single. Riding around the ranch he finds a skinny, terrified, poorly dressed woman in her late twenties. He’s not attracted to her, but he wants to protect her. That turns out to be harder than he thought. Even with the help of his family, can he keep her alive?

Can Amy ever learn to trust a man? Her life may depend on it.

Dairy-free-Eggnog | Beverley Bateman | Christmas I’m putting a recipe in my newsletter, but I thought I’d share one for a Non- Dairy Eggnog here.
Dairy-Free Eggnog (Serves 4 to 6)
2 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup bourbon, or dark rum (optional)
1/3 cup agave syrup, or honey
4 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or vanilla liquor)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Freshly grated nutmeg, for serving

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until very light and frothy, 1-2 minutes. Refrigerate until the eggnog is thoroughly chilled. Blend again briefly, then serve and top with freshly grated nutmeg. Enjoy!


Have a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
