MINEOLA, NY, April 12, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — A new memoir by author, D.K. Sanz, offers a glimpse into the tumultuous HIV/AIDS pandemic of the Eighties and Nineties and how a now often-overlooked pandemic impacted the author’s nuclear family.

Grateful to be Alive begins in the drug-infested New York City streets of Woodside, Queens, and delves deep into Sanz’s confessional self-sabotage, self-destruction, and the harrowing downward spiral she almost didn’t survive.

Whether struggling or not, you will find Grateful to Be Alive is a story of hope, of defying insurmountable odds, and finding joy.

From her earliest days, Sanz was the easily forgotten stranger, always a little out of sync with the rest of the world—a tough but naive kid and aspiring writer. Her triumph over illness and addiction includes amusing anecdotes and nostalgic, heartwarming memories.

Moonlit Dawn Publications has just published Grateful to Be Alive: My Road to Recovery from Addiction. The 349-page trade paperback ($14.99, ISBN: 9798379180379) is available to retailers from
