About the Author:

Carlene began her own publishing company. Named after her dog April, Ape Pen Publishing was born. In March 2002 Carlene's first book was published: A Photographer's Life with Disney Under Construction. The warm acceptance of the book and the encouragement of so many people, determined Carlene to continue sharing her grandfather's photos. Within the next two years Carlene published three more books of vintage Disneyland photos. By May of 2004 all four books were part of Disneyland's permanent stock of merchandise. Carlene's brand new book, Homecoming Destination Disneyland, will join her other four books on Disneyland shelves, making Carlene the most prolific author of books sold at Disneyland. During Carlene's research and publishing of the five books, she grew to treasure her grandmother's stories as much as the photos. A fascinating segment of Carlene's story is her historic family links to Disneyland. Not only did her grandfather shoot photos during Disneyland's infancy, but her father worked in constructing major parts of Disneyland, and her grandmother was a cast member at Disneyland for 18 years. Carlene discovered that her grandfather had a special relationship with Walt Disney; Walt admired Mell's work and Mell respected Walt and his dreams. Walt Disney's dream opened to the public on July 18, 1955 and Mell Killpatrick was there to capture the day. Thanks to Mell and Carlene, these historic images will last for generations.
