Vickie Hodge Holt published character educational stories for children and adult fiction stories containing historical parallel adventures. At an early age, Vickie learned to think outside the box and outside the universe. Science fiction held her mind captive as she created the time-travel machine perfect for the twenty-first century and beyond. The Sundial finds no boundaries as Vickie weaves the adventure of a life-time, and then some. Holt wrote and hosted seventy-five Christian television shows. Using puppets, ventriloquism, choreographed dance, illusions, special guests, and object lessons from the Truth Trunk, Holt's writing became visual. The show was awarded three Silver Angel Awards from Excellence in Media in Hollywood, California. Naileena, an Easter story used on the show, was awarded an honorable ribbon and was later printed as a coloring book. Naileena, printed in English and Spanish, was gifted to children in the Dominican Republic and at a Franklin Graham Crusade with Bible Man. Since 2003, Holt has challenged hearts with articles in her local publication, "Holt's Heart for Kids." True magic is created in the Spartanburg, South Carolina household by only son Marcus, and husband Steve Holt. Together they share a magical family trait. They each are magicians, who prefer to be called illusionists. Using their learned trade, Steve is a full-time magician working in various venues such as stages, birthday parties, and using sleight-of-hand at restaurants. The words spoken while performing is referred to as 'speaking patter'. Vickie often contributes to writing patter for new performances. Steve and Vickie co-authored, "The Mobile Restaurant Magician", and "The Secrets of Ventriloquism." Steve illustrated "The Energized Family", a children's book also published by AuthorHouse.
