You could try something like this:

$args = array( 'category' => 12, 'post_type' =>  'post' ); 
$postslist = get_posts( $args );    
foreach ($postslist as $post) :  
<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> 
<h4><?php the_author();?></h4> 
echo get_avatar(get_the_author_meta());     

In the example the category id is set to 12 - just replace it with the id of the category you want to use.
