Welcome to Steve Urszenyi’s website, the place to discover Steve and his writing.
Steve served for over thirty years as a paramedic in Toronto and as a tactical medic (TRU/SWAT, CBRNE, and public order unit) with the Ontario Provincial Police. He is an expert in chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE/WMD) incident response.
Most recently, Steve was the commander of the Ontario Emergency Medical Assistance Team (EMAT), the Province of Ontario’s disaster medical and all-hazards incident management response team. Steve has worked alongside various security and intelligence agencies in the United States and Canada throughout his career.
Steve has been awarded the Governor General of Canada EMS Exemplary Service Medal and Bar.The Province of Ontario has twice recognized him with awards for outstanding public service achievement.
Since he was young, Steve nurtured a love for writing, but he also felt a need to serve the public as a front-line first responder. However, his fondness for storytelling never wavered. For three years, he had a regular column in a bimonthly paramedic trade magazine. Now, he cultivates his decades of experience in emergency response and tactical operations to write authentic and gripping stories that will thrill readers.
Steve and his wife Lynne love international travel as well as traveling on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle across North America, especially through the Rocky Mountains and the American Southwest’s always-changing landscapes.
They have two grown children and have had several dogs, including Steve’s former search and rescue dogs, K9 Timber and K9 Radar.
When not writing, Steve is an avid photographer who loves hiking, camping, canoeing, and exploring the wilderness.
