Shenanigans: 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 who will stop at nothing to be with her awesome grandson Eli, but there is one huge problem!

Eli lives in Comox and Nana lives in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. There are roughly 3,600 kilometres 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 shenanigans Nana is up to by communicating with her through e-mails. 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!

Sharon is a 56-year-old proud mother of two beautiful daughters and Nana to Eli. She works as a waitress at Husky House East Restaurant and Truck Stop. Between her family and her job, they are both her life’s passions.

Eli is an amazing young boy who is now 10 years old and is in Grade 5 at Airport Elementary School. He is a true gift to all that know him. He has an amazing sense of humor and he likes to eat adventurous foods. The most adventurous so far is a cricket pizza!
