Overview

In The Woman Who Attracted Money Steve Chandler has made his exciting debut into crime fiction. Bestselling author and radio talk show host Michael Neill said, "Don't start this late at night because you won't be able to put it down. There's a new Chandler in town, and he's written the most entertaining crime thriller I've read in a long, long time." Chandler’s suspense novel features ex-cop Robert Chance and his investigator friend and romantic interest, Madison Kerr. This book is the first in a 12-book series of Robert Chance mysteries, the second of which, A Crime of Genius, will be published in June of 2010. Jim Manton, the author of The Secret of Transitions wrote: “Steve Chandler, one of the greatest personal growth authors in the world, has completely reinvented the mystery genre! Finally an author who has the creative courage to write a gripping suspense novel without dragging the reader through endless pages of low-life sleaze, gratuitous violence, or an implausible hero with comic book super powers.”

"Don't start this late at night because you won't be able to put it down. There's a new Chandler in town, and he's written the most entertaining crime thriller I've read in a long, long time." ~ Michael Neill, Author of Supercoach

"Grabs you by the scruff of the neck and doesn't let go till the end. And even then this book still hangs with you. Chandler is a master story teller." ~ Matt Furey, Author of The Unbeatable Man

“Chandler has done it! The Woman Who Attracted Money crosses the creative bridge from non-fiction to fiction. My heart was warmed as the depth of life and death came present with each page turned.” ~ Stephen McGhee, Author of Learning to Believe the Unbelievable

“This book had a driving plot, urging me to hurry up and get to what happens next, and then there was the language and wisdom of the characters, calling for reflection—reverie, even—urging a lingering pace, drawing out the pleasure of the read. My solution? I read it twice!” ~ Dale Dauten, Columnist for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Come meet mystery’s newest romantic duo: Robert Chance (cop-turned-private eye-turned-life coach) and Madison Kerr (advertising strategist-turned-computer hacker-turned-private eye). It’s a pleasure to welcome Steve Chandler to the world of crime fiction.” ~ Louise Ure, Shamus Award Winning-Author of Liars Anonymous

“Desire, deception, death, and dishonesty—all is as it should be in Southern California! The real mystery here is why Chandler has kept us waiting so long to unveil his fast-moving, sleuthing debut. I hope there are more skeletons in his closet.”
~Toby Estler, Author of Running Home

"Steve Chandler has completely reinvented the mystery genre! Finally an author who has the creative courage to write a gripping suspense novel without dragging the reader through endless pages of low life sleaze, gratuitous violence, or an implausible hero with comic book super powers.
"But wait, there even more. Chandler's protagonist, Robert Chance, is a character you will never forget. An ex-cop turned life coach will rock you with the best coaching dialogue ever written. No other book combines suspense and uncommon wisdom in a way that will at once entertain and elevate you. Without question, The Woman Who Attracted Money is the freshest and most contemporary crime story of the decade." ~ Jim Manton, Author of The Secret of Transitions

"The Woman Who Attracted Money is a clever murder-mystery woven with psychological acuity. While highly entertaining, it subtly provides the key to unlocking our own success. Chandler has written yet another masterpiece." ~ Brenda Lee, Author of Out of the Cocoon: A Young Woman's Courageous Flight from the Grip of a Religious Cult

“This book had a driving plot, urging me to hurry up and get to what happens next, and then there was the language and wisdom of the characters, calling for reflection—reverie, even—urging a lingering pace, drawing out the pleasure of the read. My solution? I read it twice!”
George Wilhite
A GREAT READ OR MYSTERY LOVERS: The mystery itself is presented confidently, with a few suprises along thw eay and an ending I did not guess; but as with the best classic mysteries, it is the original characters, superb dialoge and brisk, fast-paced prose that keep this novel constantly entertaining, thought provoking, and hard to put down. If you are an avid reader of the mystery genre, looking for something new to read, I would rate this as: Highly Recommended/Must Read.
Jack Cooper
“A former police investigator and now a ‘life coach,’ Chance is the well-read Philip Marlowe who loves Emerson and trains in left brain/right brain martial arts with the mysterious Wu Li. Chance’s first clue to solving the reported death of one of his clients is not a bloody glove but a grammar error in a suicide note. His final clue comes to him in a dream. An easily devoured book of fresh locales, delicious plot twists and spicy dialogue."
Kevin Wile
CHANDLER INVENTS NEW GENRE: What makes Steve's book so beautiful is its simplicity- punchy chapters keep the flow going nicely. And within its simplicity is awesome depth that I have not seen another mystery novel address. Steve has created something unique, a new genre. He delivers loads of wisdom, the type of wisdom gathering and discovery that occur in coaching sessions with professional coaches like himself. And he does so without coming off as a cornball or some kind of preacher.
Robert Tallon
“If you’re a coach, read this book. If you’re a mystery buff, read this book. It you’re a romance fan, read this book. If you want a great story filled with wisdom, humor, and intrigue, read this book. Steve Chandler does it again: delights and dazzles us with his generous insight and creativity! Great stuff and highly recommended.”

One-Line Bio:
Steve Chandler is the author of 30 books, a master success coach and public speaker.

Biography:

Steve Chandler is known as America's notoriously unorthodox personal growth guru that has helped thousands of people transform their lives and businesses. Steve gives us a choice: Either continue to think of ourselves as victims, or take ownership of our lives and extend our possibilities in limitless directions.

His transformational success coaching, public speaking, and business consulting have been used by CEOs, top professionals, major universities, and over 20 Fortune 500 companies. He has twice won the national Audio of the Year award from King Features Syndicate. A popular guest on TV and radio talk shows, Steve Chandler has recently been called "the most powerful public speaker in America today."

Drawing on Steve’s more than 20 years of working with professionals to dramatically improve their success, the MindSHIFT he offers frees people from unnecessary pessimism and puts them back in touch with the source of their enthusiasm for work and life.

Chandler graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Creative Writing and Political Science. He spent four years in the military studying language and psychological warfare; however, he credits his own life experiences with failure as the most valuable tools for helping others. Steve’s audiences are inspired by stories of his “low points” – it gives them hope, because they realize that they are not anywhere near as bad off as he was – they figure if Steve can transform his life, so can they.
