Summary for 5 Book Franchise Series: “The Skeleton Score”


Enter the microcosm of a thrilling new platform.
Begin by reading the brief summary below.
It is the overview of a book series and screenplay…


The death of a child is every mother’s worst nightmare. But Lily Barrington soon discovers the brutal murder of her daughter Rachel was not just a simple homicide. Rachel, Lily learns, was the subject of an elaborate genetic experiment – an experiment that created both the exotically beautiful, exceptionally gifted singer that was her child… and the composition Rachel released to the world the day she was killed. A composition that contains within it a power that could literally change the world.

Deep within the hidden recesses of Washington D.C.’s National Archives, Lily unearths centuries-old documents that hint at the nature of that power. She is shocked to find clues suggesting it is woven into the very DNA of a select, secretive group of individuals: her own family, the Barringtons. That power has made the Barringtons extraordinarily wealthy and influential – and has enabled them to direct mankind’s affairs since medieval times. Rachel’s song unwittingly released that power to the world.

The fight to control it sets in motion a globe-spanning chase that soon draws in not only other members of the Barrington family – including Lily’s estranged husband Henry, a brilliant scientist who has been working to recreate the Barrington’s power through technology he calls MEND –but Rachel’s fans as well. A chase that brings Lily face to face with both bloody, terrifying death… and the promise of new life.

Because contained within Rachel’s song… within the power that is Lily’s family birthright… is the secret that can enable her daughter Rachel to live once more.

The MEND Saga:

As in the Harry Potter franchise… the Twilight novels… the X-Files… the SKELETON SCORE instantly plunges audiences into an alternate reality…  a world that seems exactly like our own… until the secret order behind it is revealed.

The SKELETON SCORE is the first novel in a planned five-book series introducing the MEND concept and the Barrington family to readers.

Musical ENcode/Decode

Imagine a future where music carries information… a world where blockchain technology conceals not cryptocurrency but knowledge… where the key to untold power lies within a song…

That world is our own. That future is now.

Introducing MEND™ – a revolutionary concept more than a decade in the making, a concept that operates at the intersection of science and science fiction… in the universe of story, and in the here-and-now of our own world…

Based on concepts developed by acclaimed, award-winning composer/author Mardi-Ellen Hill (a Wall Street Woman of Note, a 2-time NEA Award Winner, recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and numerous other honors), MEND is built from the ground up to take specific advantage of new digital storytelling platforms as well as traditional media. Replicating Henry Barrington’s device is but the first of many ways MEND can operate in the real world. This encode/decode technology is available for deployment across a multitude of consumer/provider platforms.

Trailer opens the path to the dynasty home.

Countdown to preserve a dynasty’s secret interstellar lineage. On earth, a royal dynasty family name is embedded in a number pattern that expands and contracts the cosmos, making time travel, automation, and delivery a tempting user-friendly mobile experience. 21st Century tech news hits the net when a hot young pop star unaware of her royal dynasty background composes a song that distributes a strange signature pattern to the public. She is killed.

Without insider knowledge and admission into the dynasty fold, the song’s meaning is lost. The tune that brings the dynasty’s power to earth can change form to return the family home. The killer has devised a keypad access code that locates the dynasty pattern using the pop star’s score. MEND™ is one of the most powerful and dangerous inventions of our time. And the song already has escaped into our consciousness…

The Superpower called MEND


It is said that music is the universal language and mathematics are the universal codes to the universe.  So what if there was a machine that could take musical notations and turn it into mathematical codes that could be used for GPS, AI, altering DNA, genetics, market algorithms, or anything one could imagine to rule the world?  Enter MEND™ – (Music Encode Decode) technology.

Enter the New England Barringtons. The Barrington Family alone has control of this MEND™ device and its possible exploitation by the public. Internal power plays and sabotage within the family prevent the public’s access and exploration of MEND™ and its power.

Here’s a bit about the family history:

MEND™ as a language is culled from the secret genetic line of the Barringtons. In the 21st century some of the heirs to this age-old dynasty have landed on the family’s ancient communication secrets of teleportation, time travel, and identity.

There is a fight simmering between the heirs. The MEND™ invention, which duplicates the family’s magic, is at stake. MEND™ is dependent on an access code brought to Earth by one of the heirs.

The family Matriarch, Rose, gets wind of this fight. She seizes control and shuts down the family trading business, but not before she shares the stage with her granddaughter. Together the two women reprogram the family’s innate teleportation magic.

As far as the paparazzi are concerned, pop-star Rachel Barrington has emerged on the scene with new material. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rachel is about to give away the origin of the family tune — and its explosive power.

Rachel is killed. Her fan base goes wild thinking there might be a connection between the MEND™ invention and her brutal murder. They’re on target.

Access to the Barrington’s business, secret vault, and MEND™ invention appears to be lost until Rachel’s mother, Lily Barrington, deciphers a note left by Rachel expressly for her — a note that will fuel the change in the course of humanity.
