Sneak Peek: Enter Lily Barrington – a strange and most unlikely protagonist…


Extract from:
The Companion Book from the Universe of MEND™ – The Skeleton Score, Prologue II

“…Possessed. The pilot is overcome. Clearly his mind is not functioning properly.

Short circuiting perhaps for an instant, that was it – too simple an explanation. His husky voice is running rampant in an inaccessible language. Seems he is trying to tell the entire universe something. His sound dances in the sky, throwing passengers to all sides of the plane. Wailing with superhuman strength, his message somehow possesses all of us.

What nut locks himself in on a short flight? And what of the co-pilot? No word from him. This odd woman, Lily, our heroine, talks the guy back to his senses. She claims it is her daughter’s new hit. Two tickets to Rachel Barrington’s opening NYC première will seal the deal.

Suddenly, the plane is back on course. Lily Barrington shivers at the bargain she makes. She must find the source of this deadly craze. A star’s hit song ascending could not mean death for all these passengers, or could it? Lily recognizes the key the pilot is reaching for – one that will expand the interstellar universe at a speed that would overtake any plane, and put the earth and all its inhabitants at great risk.

Wearing a frozen smile, the flight attendant slips Lily’s note to the pilot. Immediate silence. Everyone returns to their assigned seats. Chaos quells. Eyes close. Three minutes to D.C.; all souls fall asleep. A deep heart thumping slumber of relief encompasses us.

The plane lands safely at the gate. Everyone disperses. No one will remember the strange interlude pulsing through the limbs of our bodies until we all meet again. It is the price of Lily’s bargain.”

FAST FORWARD to posts describing the Universe of MEND™ – its mind-blowing capabilities for all.

MEND™ a New Media Invention unlocked in book one: THE SKELETON SCORE


Music as classified intelligence. MEND™ -music encode decode – is an intelligence (cognitive) genetic pattern hidden in a family’s ancestry. The powerful Barringtons have a secret that connects them in perpetuity. What happens if this secret goes rogue? In the 21st century the meaning of an age-old song connecting all the members of an ancient family, is unlocked by an inventor seeking to share his family’s powerful gift with the public. Henry Barrington works undercover for the U.S. government. When his pop star daughter mysteriously lands on the family melody, she is murdered. Henry disappears. The blueprints of his MEND™ invention, a software built for commercial use are missing from his office.  

Suspicion mounts in a minute by minute attack on his family. The public disclosure of the events surrounding the star’s murder, the value of the song and the estate fight she leaves behind, builds a frenzy in world markets. The balance of power the Barringtons were gifted through her connecting voice is gone. Only her mother, the ousted Lily Barrington, has the genetic link that can locate the MEND™ blueprints, find Henry alive and restore the family name. 

Time is running out on Lily’s damage control mission. Scroll down to read more about THE SKELETON SCORE, a cosmic thriller taking you into our brave new world!

The Skeleton Score Revisited


Introducing, the fiction thriller, THE SKELETON SCORE. The book shares in the tradition of the “Da Vinci Code”. My narrative breaks new ground. The content brings an encoded musical signal to life in language we all speak. 

THE SKELETON SCORE is a teen to middle-age adult fiction thriller/sci-fi novel bordering on the very real-time interstellar science we are encountering. The book is approximately 175 pages. It is the first book in an epic series.

Quest of protagonist, Lily Barrington: the wife of U.S. inventor, Henry Barrington, unearths critical US data that decodes a notebook left behind by her murdered teen star daughter Rachel. While writing a hit tune, Rachel and her writing partner unwittingly land on the most delicate US intelligence.  Her father’s MEND™ operating design, a powerful new software is at risk. A notebook in the hands of a child on the other side of the Atlantic has been stolen. It holds pivotal access to the software. If Lily does not uncover the age-old meaning of the melody, the actions by a possessed audience will provoke revolt in city after city, where the teen star’s amazing melody is being downloaded and understood. The crowd’s viral thread is already heading right back to the US where Monday morning markets are affected. Dire consequences loom. Steamy sex scenes involving Rachel’s family show up. It is a trading game of secrets, with big stakes over the US power in world markets. What will get that notebook full of the star’s score back into our US hands?

A book of thriller fiction is a hidden real time manual

Happy summer to my MEND™ followers! In honor of our five year mark, I am reposting a wonderful article written in 2010. The interviewer was marvellous. From her well-researched questions, she got me to describe the “machinery” protagonist, Lily Barrington unlocks in the first book about the MEND™ invention.  The blog has been blooming for five years. It  is a resource, a library of teasers and episodes. It promises to bring you quickly up to speed. The article focuses on the  deep and troubling conflict the protagonist faces, and what she must sacrifice to give ready access to the public!

Read the Interview. Then scroll down to the previous post “Book 1: The Skeleton Score”.  Enter a chilling scene Lily Barrington must face in order to give you User Power in the dynasty’s secret plan.

Book One: THE SKELETON SCORE – When a teen star is murdered her last song drives her audience to her family’s diabolical past


“…They had been warned several times. No matter thousands of loyal fans swooning from her sound poured out of the concert hall. They jumped like hyenas over guard rails and roped off areas in order to get near the stage door. Within seconds, the amphitheatre blew up into a towering blaze of flames. The infectious message of her melodious voice left an indelible mark upon their faces. Expressions of ecstatic repose hardened.

Time stopped. Next morning all that was left was a mound of incinerated dust and bits of skeleton. Flesh no longer, only bones appear to glitter in the harsh sunlight. A communications system telegraphing the location, date and names spreads the signature tune across the horizon. The sorry site drives a punctuated streak of lightening across the sky. These souls would be remembered. Crashing thunder is heard by their earthly heirs. Time zone after time zone is heated. The reverb of the tune pounds the surface of the earth. A stream of cuneiform indentations marks an echoing path of the tune as it comes back to us.

A fight of astronomical proportions revs up over ownership to the melody. After all everyone on earth is in some way related to the huge throng of people who had come to the theatre. These are valuable remains with a startling ability to transmit life anywhere in the cosmos. Who knows what the benefit could be, or for that matter the cost? Luckily almost no one could read this hop-scotching message except in parts, until an ambitious enraged American inventor, Henry Barrington, decides to bring MEND™–music encode decode full screen operating system access to the public. And for reasons his separated wife Lily Barrington unearths, public access to the MEND invention is stopped. No one knows for sure exactly who was saved … ” The Universe of MEND™

MEND™ A Technology revealed in the Master Epic
The Spell of Vaugirard from Creator and Composer
Mardi-Ellen Hill

19 Feb 2015 Event: Program Page 1:

MEH Multimedia is a groundbreaking enterprise targeted to the expanding market for cross-media entertainment. The core business is the marketing and sale of the epic adventure/mystery tale of the members of the Barrington Family as they use the MEND™ Technology to fight each other for control of mankind’s future.

Using unique, geographically linked musical clues, the Barrington saga will roll out through projects in traditional media (beginning with print, and moving to film, video, and music/soundtrack) and new media (including video games, DVD, Web, and wireless.) MEH Multimedia will offer the kind of complex, interactive universe required by savvy young consumers of entertainment today.

Program Page 2:

As the Star Wars universe centers around Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, and the Dune universe focuses on House Atreides, the Universe of MEND™ revolves around the Barrington family and their unique gift, inherited over centuries, that allows them to perceive the fundamental structures of the real—the “implicate order,” as it is sometimes called in modern physics.
They perceive and manipulate this order primarily through music, which gives them the power to sequence DNA through a music-based code.

The Universe of MEND™ portfolio of assets include:

  • The five book series proposal [Contact Mardi-Ellen Hill for details]
  • The Spell of Vaugirard original Epic
  • Registered film script
  • Accompanying soundtrack/CD
  • Video Game Mechanic (initially projected as single user, for console system)
