I am doing research for a novel I am writing in which one of the characters is a member of the Twelve Tribes. I am not at all affiliated with the TT, and do not have an agenda concerning them.
However, I am looking for information from people who have lived through the TT experience first hand. I am particularly interested in parents and children who were effected or present for the Island Pond raid.
If you would like to email me about your experience, and are willing to answer some questions, I would greatly appreciate it. Your identity will never be revealed or used for anything but my own fictional narrative in which all people and places will be disguised.
I realize what a profound and often upsetting experience the Tribe has been for many, and I am hoping to understand the feelings behind this in an authentic way.
