MENDing the Gap Between Fiction and Reality

It’s not often that consumers gets to fully immerse themselves in, and become a part of, the product that’s sold to them. But MEND, an interactive story, is both an ambitious product and small business that seeks to combine fiction with reality.

The genesis of MEND is rooted in a fictional narrative written by Mardi-Ellen Hill, who conceived an entire business plan and company around the idea of an interactive story.  What she came up with is an operating system that allows people to interact with elements of the story and use the system to engage with those elements, such as a decoding a secret language that drives the story’s plot. MEND is a device that places readers of the story straight into the heart of the action.

The original book bible follows a female protagonist named Lily Barrington who’s family’s checkered past comes back to haunt her, placing her in grave danger. MEND is an invention within the story fought over by the characters and also the real-world product of Hill’s business.

The system allows readers and consumers to further participate in the narrative elements of Hill’s sweeping epic, almost like an interactive digital encyclopedia. Users can use MEND’s musical language system to decode the secret languages of the story and discover profound clues to the diabolical plot unfolding.

Hill realizes the concept is a lot to take in, noting that her biggest challenge is “articulating the difference between MEND, the work of fiction and MEND the real time operating system. MEND is both a work of fiction, and a work of reality.”

With the creation of MEND as a tangible and consumable product, Hill has bulldozed through the passive limits of storytelling, fostering a truly immersive audio-visual story that readers can actively participate in. And Hill doesn’t plan on slowing the expansion of MEND anytime soon.

“Taking off as a business is the exact stage MEND is entering now,” she said. “I always knew that after the initial conceptualization phase I would be looking to partner with a publishing company, a movie production company, a gaming company and private enterprise partners.”

Currently, the story of MEND is being produced as a script for Hollywood and has already been staged as a play production that sparked the concept for morphing MEND into other adaptions, such as books and games.

However, the most exciting part of Hill’s journey has been the evolution and innovation in technology that has enabled MEND to become a truly interactive journey for consumers.

This activity was a lot of fun, especially considering a lot of this technology did not exist when I first wrote the story. Suddenly much more of this story was understandable to a much wider audience.”

With technology continuing to catch up with Hill’s effervescent imagination, the sky’s the limit for where she’ll be able to take us with MEND next.


An inventor’s genetic destiny sparks a global threat – will you come aboard to join in the diabolical fun?

The amazing world of MEND™ has a book series, film script, games, music, a blog and numerous other products for online and off-line content and immersive space interactivity.

A simple lullaby tune morphs/ evolves over centuries. The song has supernatural powers. This family tune can be used miraculously to unlock signature content. The characters born to the ancient Barrington dynasty spin map data from musical language into language we know and understand!

THE SKELETON SCORE, first book in an epic tale, is a story of inheritance, identity and espionage. Diabolical, and thrilling, the characters of the Barrington dynasty are driven by their innate talent and power to control the world. Enter the 21st century. Evolution brings mechanization into the character’s lives. Suddenly the dynasty is aware of the enormous trading value of their power.

An inventor in the 21st century motivated by revenge surrounding his own genetic background is out to share with the public, the most secret of all powers — a secret his family has kept hidden for centuries. With the help of a cousin who programs data and incidentally kills for a living, the inventor threatens his own clan, almost putting them to bed for good.

Inventor Henry Barrington uses two of his own children to show the public how a message-relay can extend all around the world in one nano-instant, a rogue signal that competes hands down, with the biggest big data online.

Only the hands of the real time public can make the final leap into the world of MEND™, and bring the invention itself to the next level… time is ticking!

A new technology: MEND™ – it arrives via a thriller story


WHAT IS MEND™- music encode decode?

130901PostEveryone knows he or she owns a personalized signature, right? Whether it is your pen and ink extravaganza, your stylish gait, your tatoo message, your texting imprimatur, your vocal cache, your unique model for creating content, the arrival of your presence in a room – your signature in all its forms – rolls out a continuum that evolves throughout your life.

If you get this, you are on your way to understanding the technology of MEND™ and how it will allow you to harness vital aspects of the way you alone process data and broadcast data.

Every human who connects to the physical world is leaving footprints of an evolving signature.  Yours is a signature that proves ancestry, ownership, identity and more. Your signature holds critical data that spells out who you are, and what you are about.

Why is it called MEND™ – music encode decode?

The dimension of music provides a medium in which one’s signature and identity can be hidden, archived like a banking accounting system and revealed at any later time..

As humans who act from a thoroughly unconscious and automatic realm, we give each action, a particular value, often without realizing what that value is…

Spoiler Alert!

An inventor designs a mobile network based on the genetic signature of his family.  He uses two daughters to show how a music score they unwittingly create on a iPad, unlocks the destination of a hidden village.  Inside that village the remains of an ancestor are buried in a music puzzle.  Until the 21st century, deciphering the puzzle’s meaning was impossible.  Computers have changed all that for a yearning online crowd. MEND™ access is dependent upon the puzzle reveal – a key that connects all of the members of the family.  The access key gives the family tremendous communication power. It is time for all of us to have this power!

Fiction Meets Real Time

Rachel Barrington lands on a melody that opens the family’s private music dimension.

The inventor Henry Barrington and wife have been on the outs. Their debutante star daughter Rachel Barrington is suddenly murdered. Someone wants to make sure the puzzle remains buried and MEND™ is closed to the public.  Henry must find a way to get the attention of his wife, Lily. Both Henry and Lily may soon be held as prime suspects in the murder.  Timing is critical. The puzzle that gives access to the public is dependent on Lily’s access to the family history.  Lily will be shocked to learn many family secrets.

To get her attention, Henry sends her messages using the family melody – everything from TTYL to LOL and more can be sent using this melody.  Wherever she is on earth, Lily must be able to hear Henry’s passionate call in order for her to open the village puzzle found in the first book : THE SKELETON SCORE.

Transmedia and MEND™. New Stakes in a Global World

Mardi Ellen Hill

Mardi Ellen Hill – MEND™ Creator

MEND™ is a new tool kit of technology. The invention is introduced via a launchpad story for the age of social media.

THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD saga, tells the story of the hidden history of the world, of the hidden order that underlies the visible, and of the family whose special perceptions and powers have used the hidden order to shape the world’s history.

Always there have been the Barringtons – not under that name alone but under many, from the start of human history to the present. A specially gifted genetic line, they alone know the hidden order beneath the visible – an order of sound, of power, which is vast and almost entirely hidden from the rest of us. The family’s internal conflicts are written large in the history of the world.

THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD saga begins with the prequel book: THE SKELETON SCORE. Events in the present and near future unfold a tale that goes back in time over several books. Each volume deepens the meaning of future events and the final volume culminates in the events that began it all – inventor, Henry Barrington’s simultaneous discovery of the Barrington secrets and his own.

The stakes are climbing. Henry’s invention finds its way to his daughter Rachel and a secret love child in Paris. His own office explodes. Rachel is killed. Her untimely death hits the airwaves. Without their tools we are hostages and helpless in a family war; a war with a long history set to climax now. We need their tools. Risk finds reward when we uncover their magic.

Here’s a slice of life in the day of the STAR, Rachel Barrington.

In the fictional saga, THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD, the dynamic new user based technology, MEND™ emerges in the first book: THE SKELETON SCORE.  Rachel has just gotten off the stage. At her all-night celebration party, she dishes to her stylist about a fun iPad game she has been playing with a young child in Paris. It seems Rachel’s new song is a product of a back and forth conversation with this young child. Rachel though, has claimed the song as her own.

Unfortunately Rachel is about to make her way home for the last time.  Her stylist, sent to disrupt Rachel’s success, has just found the unfinished MEND™ board. She is rounding up the killer who will find Rachel’s score and input the access code that everyone has been waiting for… except there will be one problem…

Since Rachel never finished her score, the killer will be off the track until the young child’s diary of character/portal access is found.  The Barringtons have an internal time clock that keeps their family tune moving around the globe, until someone who is truly vested with the access-code knowledge stops the clock.

What was once a family fight is about to explode into a global fight for MEND™ membership access and ownership.

Rachel&RoseWithExplosionFor all of you who are new to this blog & those who have been following, here’s a scene that shows how the STAR singer in the epic saga, THE SPELL OF VAUGIRARD powers up the force of her ancestry in a grand auditorium filled with with her devoted A-listers and relatives.

A compass that is a specialized MEND™ – musical encode decode tool – is reading and transforming all the performance data in the hall. Rachel is receiving her inheritance from her Matriarch grand-mère, Rose.  Rose Barrington is sending her a hidden message, that Rachel needs to understand as her own personal signature tag on her own song. If Rachel completes the phrase and fulfills her secret prophesy, she will compromise MEND™ security and open the family vault…

Rachel misses her mark. It is a close call. The star can’t seem to remember the four note passage that Rose passes to her. We can watch and soon partake in mobilizing her data. It is sifted and sent through several MEND™ portals for future use of her power. But then her real human form is hunted down soon after she leaves the auditorium, so that her personal signature ID, an address of her doll in the grand family plan Arcade, can be gotten before her life is snuffed out.

Rachel heads home to her killer. Meanwhile the compass forms a cloud that delivers the melody back to her mother, Lily Barrington, narrator of THE SKELETON SCORE. The compass/clock is stopped.  The vault is sealed.  Dynasty secrets are about to explode…

Everyone in her family has a motive to have wanted her signature.  It is a missing link to understanding how the powerful family began on earth in just one glorious day!

As the prequel book THE SKELETON SCORE opens, Charles has quietly taken MEND™ and engraved the family origination seal in the elevator keypad at the hotel in D.C where Lily Barrington, mother of the star is staying. Unbeknownst to Lily, she is soon to be inheritor of the family estate. Only Lily’s personal entry into the elevator cab, and her own hand on the engraved keypad will activate the family private MEND™ system. The human transfer and activation of software meets hardware has to be a perfect match for the inheritance to be legal and fully messaged/ documented in the Barrington secret cryo-vault. Lily is set up for a trap – a trap for her to speak and incriminate herself by narrating one of the biggest plots the U.S. has ever waged in the history of the world. Scroll down to the previous post to see the elevator and how the messaging system works to light up the world with the U.S. message alert!
