Fred Marple

Fred Marple is the unofficial spokesman for the imaginary town of Frost Heaves, the most underappreciated town in New Hampshire. Fred—also known as humorist and songwriter Ken Sheldon—has been on New Hampshire Chronicle, in the pages of Yankee Magazine, and New Hampshire Magazine, and on the radio. He has appeared at town halls, church basements, and the homes of most of his friends, usually right around dinner time. Fred is a graduate of the Frost Heaves Academy and the East Coast School of Knife Sharpening and Carburetor Repair.
