More About the Author

Spin the Plate is a story that was previously released in Short Story and Novella form. The story was fully updated and revised and on January 1, 2013 self-published as a full-length novel.

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.

The best book ever written about gerbils, "Gerbils: The Complete Guide to Gerbil Care" contains amazingly accurate information about gerbil care, breeding and health issues - so accurate that I would even recommend taking this book to your vet with you to help them better diagnose your gerbils' ailments. There is a chapter on fun things to do with your gerbils, including gerbil art projects and training gerbils, as well as sections on housing, feeding, taming, breeding, showing gerbils and coping with gerbil loss. Just about every aspect of owning gerbils is covered in this wonderfully written book, as told from the perspective of one of the top gerbil breeders in the US. Despite her expertise and attention to factual detail, Donna Anastasi's book is concise and fun to read, enhanced with beautiful photographs taken by Ellen Bellini. I highly recommend this book, having read others that are not quite up to par or even give incorrect information. This book tells it as it is: the glorious truth about owning gerbils from beginning to end of their precious little lives. Enjoy!

I have owned Hamsters for six years straight, and I love them and all rodents in general. I also adore reading. So naturally, I've read almost every rodent book out there. Most of them are satisfactory, but a little outdated. I may be getting Gerbils, so, seeing all of the good reviews fellow Amazonians gave this book, I decided to purchase it. That was a good desicion! This book is easy-to-read, without being simple. It presents everything you need to know about gerbils(in a professional manner that doesn't feel like the author is talking down to you), and more! It includes chapters about showing, breeding, gerbil crafts and playing with your gerbils(and that's just the extras! I have personally emailed the person who wrote this book. She is a judge for the Gerbil Association(I think), a breeder and gerbil exhibitor. Her website is [...] She is located in New Hampshire. Take it from the person who has been searching for the perfect gerbil book for years(and has finally found it)...buy this!

If you are looking for the best gerbil care book, look no further.

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.

The other reviewers are right--Donna Anastasi knows gerbils! This delightful book is so much fun to read (again and again) that it would potentially convince anyone that gerbils are the pets for them. Best of all, it's 176 pages, so it's packed full of information--from tips to games. As a result of reading this book I became a fan not only of gerbils, but also of Ms. Anastasi (you will, too!), whose love for these furry little rodents is evident throughout the work. Imagine my delight when I adopted a pair and found out they're great-granddaughters of her gerbils!

If you only get one gerbil care book--make this one it.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By George N. Appenzeller on December 28, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 8 year old has been wanting gerbils for months. We told him he had to read and be able to talk to us about them and their care. He (and the rest of the family) have now read several books. This was by far the best. My son made the decisions about cages, types, sex etc on his own after reading this book. He could discuss care issues and that he was not ready for breeding, wanted 2 females and what he would have to do to care for them.

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.

Were you wondering when the ultimate book on gerbil care would be written?

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!

What a WONDERFUL book! It is, indeed, as the title says, "Gerbils, the Complete Guide to Gerbil Care". Everything you need and want to know about geribls is in this book! It is wonderful for both the pet owner (whatever age) and the owner who wants to breed gerbils. All the information is accurate (alas, not the case in many gerbil care books). Written in a friendly, easy to read, very accessable manner, this is THE definitive book on gerbils and their care! I've owned gerbils for MANY years, and read many books on gerbils. This is the best!

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!
