Shenanagans: Secret activity, silly or high-spirited behaviour, mischievous. That’s what author Sharon Dyni, also known as Nana, is known for. She’s a middle aged wild and crazy woman that will stop at nothing to be with her awesome grandson Eli, but there is one huge problem. Eli lives in Comox on Vancouver Island, British Columbia and Nana lives in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. There are roughly 3600 Km between them. Nana wants to be with Eli so badly that she comes up with an epic idea. She is going to swim the ocean out to him! Now, this may sound wild and crazy, and it is, but how hard could it be? Sadly, there is another gigantic problem here…..where’s the ocean? Every day Eli anxiously waits to see what kind of “Shenanagans” Nana is up to by communicating with her through emails. Now readers around the world will be able to follow Nana’s adventures to find the ocean.

This unique story will let readers see that with deep love, determination, lots of encouragement and the strong bond Nana and Eli share for each other, nothing can keep them apart. Nana gets herself into some pretty wild and crazy predicaments. As the story unfolds it’s pretty apparent that Eli becomes the adult and he has a huge job ahead of him. Nana’s journey to find the ocean is very challenging to say the least. Eli is very worried about Nana and continues to encourage her to use her brain and to be safe along her journey. Will she find the ocean? What wild and crazy adventures are waiting for her? Along this incredible journey Eli and Nana learn the best lesson ever. When you “BELIEVE” in yourself you can do anything.
