Charleena Purcell is a famous romance novelist. She is a skilled researcher, making her books as historically accurate as possible.
Charleena's book Like Wind Through My Heart appears at Mary's Gifts in Arizona. Bet Rawley even has a signed copy of it. Since the book took place around the area that Nancy is in, she calls Charleena to get information that will help her find Dirk Valentine's treasure. Charleena knows a lot about the Humbers, the family that used to own Shadow Ranch in the 1880s.
In 2005, Lori Girard invites Charleena onto Jake Hurley's restored train in order to help solve the mystery of what happened to Jake. Lori happens to be a big fans of hers, and can be seen reading her latest book, The Moon Tells No Lies. Lori and Charleena have an arguement, though, when Lori realizes that Charleena used some of the ideas she had submitted to her in the book without crediting her.
