Marc Dunston, better known by his stage name, “Magic Marc,” is a man of many talents – host, executive producer, author, magician, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Marc found a passion for magic at a young age. After countless hours of practice and a B.S. degree in business management and marketing from Philadelphia University, Marc was ready to take on the world with his magic tricks and many talents.

He has been featured on Fox, CBS, BET, BRAVO, HGTV & PBS networks.

“HOW DID HE DO THAT?”
That’s the question asked by everyone who watches Magic Marc Dunston as he performs his tricks. But like all good illusionists, he does not reveal his secrets. Which leaves his mystified audiences to ponder the question: “How did he do that?”
When Marc decides to enter the school talent contest, he is at first discouraged because, unlike all the other kids, he can’t come up with a talent. But during a trip to the school library, he picks out a book about Harry Houdini and decides that his talent will be magic. He practices all week for the big contest, and when he wins the prize, he buys a Thanksgiving feast for his friend, whose father recently lost his job. This uplifting picture book for young readers encourages kids to develop their abilities and use their talents to help not only themselves but others.
