Greetings Everyone. I have Meredith O'Reilly here with me today featuring her newest release, Learning To Be Little Again.
Author Bio: Meredith O’Reilly is a rather new author. She still can’t believe that she has had two stories published. As of right now, she is currently only writing age play stories, however, she is trying to branch out and find another genre of stories to write for.
In her spare time, Meredith goes to school, watches a little too much Netflix, and experiments with learning how to cook new things in the kitchen. Mostly, she tries to balance her life between school work and author work. That’s a task that is easier said than done, most times.
Melody-- Did you have a favorite book growing up? If so, what was it and why?
Meredith-- I was a big series girl. I loved reading the American Girl Doll series, the Bailey School Kids series, the Junie B. Jones Series, The Series of Unfortunate Events, etc. My favorite stand alone book was called Small Steps: The Year I got Polio by Peg Kehret. That was the first book that I read in a day back when I was in 5th grade. I loved that book because it was an autobiography that told a 12 year old girl's journey with having three different types of polio. The odds were against her, she was away from home, her family, and yet she still beat her disease. For me, it was always a book that showed that miracles do exist.
Melody-- Small Steps sounds like a real tear-jerker. I'm glad it had a happy ending and also that it still seems to affect you yet to this day. I love stories that touch the heart too. Where's your favorite place to write?
Meredith-- My bed. I have a process. I write my first draft on my iPad, while lying in bed. My bed is comfortable and my characters love to talk to me when I’m lying in bed. Once I finish my first draft, I email it to my desktop computer to edit and then send off to my editors.
Melody-- Oh, that sounds comfy. I have a hard time typing on anything but a computer. Just trying to send a text from a cell phone is a challenge for me. I tried to leave a review from my kindle once. It had so many typo's I had to jump on my computer and go fix them. Those auto correct features seem to have an imagination all of their own. So, do you outline your stories, or are you more of a panster?
Meredith-- Kind of both. Before I write my story, I have a general thought process about what's going to happen in my story. But, I don't write an outline. As I begin writing my story, some things pop out that I’d never planned.
Melody-- Oh yeah, that happens to me all the time, normally after the first chapter is written, the characters are like 'Hey, we're free... let's take this story in a direction Melody never saw coming.' Then there are times I have to argue with them a bit to get them to conform to where I need the story to go.
Annoying yellow Inner-voice-- Hi, Meredith. I just wanted to say, the cover of your new book is so cute. I love the colors, and the teddy bear is just adorable. I have a question I've been dying to ask someone. Have you ever eaten Okra? If so, did you like it?
Meredith-- I've never eaten it. I tried snails once though... they were crunchy!
Melody-- Wait a minute. Crunchy? I'm not 100 % positive on this, but the only crunchy part of a snail is the shell. I don't think your suppose to eat that part... LOL.
Okay, enough of the food oddities. Do you do anything special for yourself after you finish a book?
Meredith-- I go to my Amazon wish list and buy myself either a couple of kindle books or something that I've wanted. I also go to the store and get a Prairie Farms regular chocolate milk. It is the best, sweetest, chocolatiest (made up a new word there) milk out there.
Melody-- Me too, Meredith. I enjoying treating myself to a new book after I finish writing one. You have me curious about this Prairie Farms, sweetest and most chocolatiest milk. I'll be looking around for this when I go shopping.
Let's talk about your writing schedule. How many hours a day to you spend typing away on your iPod?
Meredith-- Sadly, I only really write during the winter and summer breaks. During the school year, I'm very busy with school, so I try to write on breaks so I can then work on edits during the school year. I do get a little writing done during the school year, but not near as much as I do on my breaks.
Melody-- I think it's wonderful that your going to school full time and still find the time to work on such wonderfully touching stories as 'Learning To Be Little Again'. What has been the biggest challenge in your writing career so far?
Meredith-- Writing spanking scenes. I read other author’s spanking scenes and I’m always like, “Man, that’s hot!” Then I write mine and I’m like, “Meh.” I want to work on writing such hot spanking scenes that even I’m like, “Holy crap that was SMOKIN’ hot!”
Melody-- Are you kidding me? I think your spanking scenes are quite the work of art. I enjoy your creativity when it comes to making them meaningful and different. Now you've got me curious about your blurb and your excerpt. What tempting yumminess do you have for us today?
Twenty four year old Juliana once loved being a little, until the cruelty of the man she had called daddy broke her heart and she decided to never be little again. But when she fails to take care of herself and becomes ill, a worried friend brings her to Dr. Robert O’Connor, claiming that he will understand what she needs. Juliana is embarrassed and nervous, but to her surprise, Robert gives her a teddy bear and tells her a fairy tale to help her relax. Though the exam is intimate and thorough, Juliana feels safe the whole time and hopes afterwards that she’ll see more of the handsome doctor.
From the moment Robert heard about Juliana’s past, he wanted nothing more than to take away her pain and make sure she never has to worry about anyone hurting her again. He is thrilled when he asks her out and she shyly agrees. Though Juliana claims she doesn’t want to be a little anymore, he longs to prove to her that age play with him is nothing to fear. Robert is a patient man, and before long Juliana is calling him “daddy”, playing with her dolls, and coloring. He delights in taking care of her every need, dressing her in footie pajamas, and brushing her hair. Even when Juliana is disobedient and Robert has to put his baby girl over his knee and spank her bare bottom, it is always followed by plenty of loving hugs and cuddles.
Soon Juliana is eating more and sleeping better, and feels healthier than she has in a long time. But when the man who once abused her skips bail and threatens to hurt her if she continues to see her new daddy, she becomes terrified. Will she ever be free to relax in her daddy’s arms, knowing he will keep his little girl safe from everything and love her no matter what?
Publisher’s Note: Learning to be Little Again is a stand-alone sequel to Little Samantha’s Choice. It is an erotic romance novel that contains spankings, age play, medical play, anal play, sexual scenes, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Melody-- It sounds like Robert is going to be a comforting and refreshing change for Juliana. Do you have a snippet for us?
Meredith-- Of course and it's one I think you'll really like, Melody. As a part of Juliana’s punishment for not listening, Robert makes her wear a butt plug during her nap and for the rest of the time that their friends are over.
“There is one last part to your punishment. I’m going to make you wear a butt plug for your nap and for the rest of the time our guests are here. I’m hoping that it teaches you to always listen to your daddy. If you take it out, you’ll be over my knee again. Understand?”
Another wave of embarrassment rolled over me as his lubed finger entered my bottom hole. He added a couple more before pulling them out and the unmistakable feel of the rubber butt plug was at my bottom hole.
I couldn’t help the whine that escaped my lips as he gently pushed it in me.
“Relax, baby girl. You’re okay. This is the widest part,” he said as I whined again, my bottom hole stretching to accommodate the plug.
“There you go. Now let’s get you dressed. Then it’s nap time,” he said, as my bottom clenched around the invader. I didn’t like having the plug in me, but I knew my daddy wouldn’t take it out, no matter what I said.
I nodded. After all the crying and squirming, I was exhausted. He helped me get my clothes on. It was uncomfortable because every time that I moved, the plug shifted in my bottom, making me very aware of it.
After a few more attempts, I was dressed and was tucked into bed.
“Sweet dreams, baby girl.” He left the room and I was soon sound asleep.
Melody-- Oh what a tease you are Meredith. I think you know me to well. I love anything to do with anal scenes and using a plug as a punishment is HOT! You must tell us where we can find this hot new release?

Melody-- I'm sure readers are curious what you have in store for future books. What have you in the works following Learning To Be Little Again?
Meredith-- I actually just emailed James about this. I’m most likely going to work on an age play book that will go along with the first two books that I have written. You’ll have to keep your eyes open for it to come out in a few months.
Melody-- Oh, I am sure that's going to make your age-play fans very happy.
Finish this sentence. I'll stop writing when...
... No new stories pop into my head. But, stories have been popping into my head since I was seven years old in first grade, I doubt that they’ll stop anytime soon.
Melody-- It's been a real treat having you here today Meredith. Where can folks stalk... err, I mean find out more about you online?
Meredith-- Thank you for having me on your blog today, Melody. I agree it's been a lot of fun. For those curious about learning more about me I can be found on.
