Holiday Coffee

Last year I made Holiday Coffee for my father in law. I got it out of a Cosmopolitan magazine. So I figured if you’re looking for an inexpensive gift for your favorite coffee drinker you might wanna give this a shot.

Holiday Coffee

1 pound medium-bodied coffee (like Colombian)

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

In a large bowl, combine coffee with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

Use the back of a knife to scrape vanilla beans from the pod into the coffee mixture. Mix well.
Place in a big jar or coffee bags that can be found at craft stores or kitchen supply stores.
This is what your supposed to end up with (I’m well aware that the tag says Hot Chocolate but it was all I could find. LOL)


While your delicious coffee’s brewing (because you know you’re gonna make a cup for yourself too) is a perfect time to read a short intro for my latest release.

When joined together, Cinderella’s slippers grant the wearer her heart’s desire. But whose wish will be granted?
When Cinderella’s glass slipper is stolen, Queen Felicia sends her faithful steward Terrance to the real world to retrieve his love and witch-in-training, Bianca Frost. The power of the glass slipper in the wrong hands could ruin peace in Everafter. Bianca must gather every bit of magic she has learned in the past few weeks to find the slipper and protect her new love. Together, Bianca, Ming, Prince Ferdinand, and Terrance venture deep into the heart of Everafter to seek clues as to who has stolen the slipper and why. Along the way, they uncover what happened to the Seven Dwarves after Snow White married the prince, but also learn the awful risk of tampering with black magic and the high price that must be paid for magical aid, even when used for good.
Bianca and Terrance’s relationship is put to the test. Through the pain of suffering and loss, Bianca must determine if following her gallant boyfriend into his faraway world is in fact her heart’s desire.

Always learning…

Okay so I haven’t been able to blog as much as I would like over the past few weeks. Except of course Fairy Tale Friday and the announcements of all the random things going on in my life. LOL I’ve been busy with Zombie Ever After and learning everything I can about how to be a comic book writer. Good thing I’m a quick-study, otherwise I’d be so freakin’ screwed. LOL

Thankfully Mik Jimenez (the incredible artist working with me on ZEA) and Lennit at Emerald Star Comics have been very patient with me and teaching me the ropes. I’ve been reading every book I can get my hands on that has the words ‘comic book writing’ anywhere on the cover. LOL I’ll write another blog post about it and let you know books are the best ones. I just wanted to at least pop in here and let you all know that I’m alive and well.

Oh! And I wrote like 5 pages worth of Shattered Frost the other day. I’m pretty sure that I’m skipping towards carpul tunnel syndrome since my hands hurt all the time.

Sigh. Anyway I’ve been learning a lot, writing a lot, and sleeping very little. 😀

What have you guys been up to? Talk to me! What are you reading? What projects are you currently working on?
