Ideas and imagination…unfettered.


Andrew Vail


“Writers will happen in the best of families.” – Rita Mae Brown

Andrew Vail’s writing career began in Halifax when he was but a child. In Grade 4, he wrote and produced his own series of comic books entitled “Freaky The Frog”, the on-going tale of a little misfit frog and his pals of the pond. Marvel Comics never came knocking but Andrew knew he loved to create and tell stories. Since then, Andrew has worked in advertising, PR and publicity; has interviewed politicians, rock stars and very interesting yet not-so-famous movers and shakers. He has published articles in a variety of local and national magazines and websites.

Andrew started Unvailed to have a place for a variety of voices from a variety of people from many walks of life to come together and share ideas, thoughts and opinions. Unvailed is a place where constructive discourse can take place.

I want to learn and I hope I can be of some help to all who choose to gather around my little campfire.
