(IsraelNN.com) More than 50 religious leaders from around the world, representing Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism, will meet in Taipei, Taiwan, between November 28 and December 1, 2005 to collaborate on contemporary issues facing all leading religions. Of particular focus at the meeting will be youth suicide and developing efforts - begun at the first such conference in Seville, Spain, in 2003 - to address the increasing secularization of society.
While reading my news feeds this morning, I came across this news brief, and immediately thought of a great story premise using this event as a background. My premise:
Megan Donovan, a reluctant Christian delegate for the 2005 Interfaith Conference discovers that another delegate isn't who he claims. He's an assassin sent to create a religious war. When she speaks to Justus Angelhoff, head of conference security about her discovery, she finds that they already know about the attempt. And they believe that she's the assassin.
I know its loopy, but you got to try right. :)

And you get to play with some real deal issues that may even scare you so bad, that you can't help but crank out the novel. After all, how can you get any sleep when you're running for your life, while trying to save the religious world?
Writing to see what the end's gon' be,
