About the Author
Kevin Glynn, MD, is a senior physician with Scripps Health in La Jolla, California, where
he also served as chief of pulmonary medicine and medical director of respiratory care
at Scripps Mercy Hospital. His thirty years of treating respiratory disorders combined
with his personal experience as an asthma sufferer uniquely qualify him to tell the story
of breathing. The former editor of the San Diego Physician, and widely published in
nationally circulated journals, Dr. Glynn was also recognized for his contributions as a
bedside teacher, receiving the Award for Sustained Excellence in Teaching at Scripps
Mercy – and it is this ability as a teacher that renders his writing so compelling.
A cartoonist who drew gags for the San Diego County Medical Society magazine and
self-syndicated them to other journals, after retirement it came down to resuming
cartooning or writing a book. With so much to share, Dr. Glynn decided to write. Dr.
Glynn lives in La Jolla with his wife. When not writing, playing golf, or participating in
community projects through Rotary International, he spends his time cheering on his
grandchildren at their soccer games.
