Targeted to Caribbean readers/expatriates/tourists, as well as film buffs and the furry fandom, Marigot Magic is a middle-grade children's novel project by Routhwick. Set during summer 2011, the story focuses on a young Guadeloupe raccoon named Samson Dixwell, and chronicles his quest to track down the owner of some recovered film footage. Sam is caught up, however, within the frenzy of a large-scale family reunion in Dominica's northeast, and learns what unrequited love is—at age 8½—thanks to a ring-tailed cat by the name of Violet. (Despite her looks and species name, she isn't really a feline.)
Marigot Magic took part in 2012's National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo for short); its draft "won" with 105,312 words. The first draft of the first book (two are planned) is currently available at Smashwords, and will be replaced with Version 0.3 at an undetermined date.
This site is designated as the official wiki of Marigot Magic, and is hosted for free on Referata. (Referata is a service powered by both MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki, and founded by Yaron Koren.) We call it a Dossier, with due respect to the old dictionary definition: "a collection of papers containing detailed information about a particular person or subject (usually a person's record)". This captures part of the essence of what we aim to do here.
Curious about the "Dixwell" part? In August 2012, author and creator Routhwick found the name on a main street in Hamden, Connecticut, during his summer journeys to various libraries near his adopted hometown of Waterbury. As he remarked back then, "That's the avenue along which its main library, Miller Memorial, stands. You guys rock—the same for your building!"
