Superstition meets modern science when a woman with a haunted past becomes the subject of a genetics experiment using her DNA.

Two children write a melody with an encrypted message only she can decode. The message holds sensitive familial information being sold to the US government by her lover who has the goods on her well known family, and bigger targets waiting on his killer radar.

The psycho thriller tells the story of three generations of a family in a fight to retain their power, when a new invention MEND™ (Music | ENcode | Decode) outs their interstellar secret to their singular force and influence in the cosmos.

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.

MEND™ Automation: a Revolutionary Tale

MEND™ Fuel Goes Rogue


Two spies in the thriller breakout story THE SKELETON SCORE are wearing a time piece that will tell us the address of the next location a tune will be heard – a tune with a final destination in the cosmos.

The riff has the encoding – decoding power to bring any human it touches into a dynasty’s lair, imprinting a messaging system that only members can access and use.

Enter one of the most dangerous missions of humankind.

What time will you be aboard?

Rachel Barrington, 18, a pop star with signature access to highly classified USA intelligence is MIA.

Introducing Book One.  Prologue One: The Skeleton Score. From:The Universe of MEND™.

“Hey, dude, how much you think a night banging the hottest pop star on the air is worth?”

“Heard from the guys there is killer fighting going on in the family. Big sell-off. Word on the street, nothing short of a miracle’s going to save those losers. That star, she’s the last hope for this clan, sure she knows her individual worth. But get out from under?! Never. Her time might be up?!”

“Yeah, a famous name like Rachel Barrington, granddaughter of one of the most renowned voices in the world. How could she tour the globe, without that entire clan and fans hunting her down?”

All over the net are promos for her next show in New York. Great bait. Someone’s rolling over on the fam using her megaphone voice as the perfect source. Rachel Barrington, flagship name heralding the Barrington power? Not their real name anyway. If she’s on the planet and live, she’s the rabbit hole habit fed to the press.”

“Nah, too many trade secret leaks, sensitive government contracts, with Presidential year ass-kissing liability. Hell, I’m wagering that sweet looking chick is in big trouble. That hit tune of hers gets me in the loins. Some say she didn’t write it herself. Who cares? Spooked through my big ones. Love to get inside her. Can’t help thinkin’ the girl’s already dead or on her way to eternity.”

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.
