Writing Around Veal's Station took Laurie on one long field trip in her home state of Texas. She interviewed folks in the community around Veal's Station, hunted down historic photos and records, and photographed near-forgotten sites. If you are interested in Texas history or have a special place in your heart for Parker County, this book is for you. Around Veal's Station is the story of how Parker County began. 

Heavily illustrated with historic photographs and records, the book features Parker County history from the Veal’s Station, Slover, Sabathany, Dicey, Wright, Cartersville, and Silver Creek communities.


Parker County artist Diane Brown provided the cover illustration of historic Veal’s Station Hall, as well as illustrations throughout the book.
