Q & A with "Welcome to Frost Heaves" Author Fred Marple


Fred Marple is on a one-man campaign to put the town of Frost Heaves, New Hampshire back on the map, since—as the town motto goes—you can't get there from here. Fred (also known as humorist Ken Sheldon) has been featured 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. 

We had a chance to sit down with Fred, and his pal Ken, to discuss the history of the town of Frost Heaves, his new book, and what is was like writing with Garrison Keillor.
