Goodreads asked Laura McBride:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Laura McBride I think it might be a question of where did I not get an idea? When I was writing We Are Called to Rise, my senses were on full alert. Waking or sleeping, I was always half thinking of the book, and everything that happened to me, everything I sensed, everything I experienced, jumped back and touched what I was doing in the novel.

I had long planned to write a story about Las Vegas, and I had been thinking about my home in these terms for years before I began to write.
