More About the Author
About Spin the Plate: A Novel - Jo is a survivor of a bleak and abusive childhood who roams the city streets at night as a powerful vigilante. Francis is a mysterious man she meets on the subway train. In this story, the average-guy hero battles to win the battered heart of the wary, edgy, less-than-perfect heroine. "A fast-paced, edgy, darkly comic tale of resilience, romance, and redemption that breaks over you in waves." - Holly Robinson, author
Anastasi has authored two non-fiction small animal books published by Bowtie press: The Complete Guide to Gerbil Care (2005) a popular how to breed, raise, and care for gerbils book and The Complete Guide to Chinchilla Care (2008) a chinchilla handbook promoting these exotic and intelligent creatures as companions, not coats. Spin the Plate (2013) is her debut novel.
Donna Anastasi loves all things small and furry. Her interests include judging at small animal shows, photography, films, road trips, and writing when she has to. She lives in the woods of Southern New, Hampshire with her husband, two teen-aged daughters and an ever-changing menagerie.
Top Customer Reviews
This is the ultimate gerbil care book. It is very easy to read, full of reliable information and great pictures. The best of all, throughout the book you feel Donna's love for gerbils. I strongly recommend this book for all gerbil lovers young and old.
In comparison to other books, this has more useful information, is more complete, better photos and after three days with the gerbils has already answered multiple questions.
If you can only get one book then this should be it.
If you only get one gerbil care book--make this one it.
Did your children asked you questions on gerbils that you were unable to answer?
Have you ever wondered if gerbils could be trained to perform tricks?
Did you know gerbils can actually purr??
This is ,without a doubt, the best book ever written on gerbils, not only featuring a complete, accurate guide on gerbil's care and incredible photos (if you have a gerbil , you'll know how difficult is to take good pictures of them, they never stay still!) but also fun, easy to read info , like how to teach them to perform some tricks, what to do and what not to do,etc, all beautifully written , for ALL ages to understand.
As a gerbil owner and breeder, I highly recommend this book, , for everybody. Gerbil owners-to-be should buy the book before getting their gerbils, and it should be reading material in every classroom having gerbils as pets.
NOT TO BE MISSED!
The photographs by Ellen Bellini are fantastic. The gerbils are adorable, and seeing them would make anyone want to own some, I would think!
I highly recommend this book for EVERY gerbil owner!
