Neighborhood writer and entrepreneur Mike Poss is at it again: This time, he has written "Ebby Halliday: The First Lady of Real Estate." The book, which debuts in bookstores in February, details the life story of Halliday, who will be 98 in March. Also in the book, you’ll find lots of company history, comments from those who know Halliday best and a forward by former Dallas Cowboy Roger Staubach. Poss, who was recognized earlier this year as the creator of Ross Perot’s famous presidential election charts, is married to neighborhood resident Mary Poss, a former Dallas mayor pro tem and mayoral candidate who sells real estate with Ebby these days. If you can’t wait until February to get your hands on the book, visit Ebby’s website, where you can order the book right now for $30.95 (including shipping); all orders placed before Dec. 15 will be autographed for free by Ebby.
