Born into the aftermath of World War II in Dortmund, Germany, Lothar Birkner
earned a Masters in Philosophy at Münster College and studied Theology.
After a successful career as a head Accountant for a public trading company his employment was terminated because he refused to trick fellow employees out of their severance pay
Birkner’s loss of fortune led to a stint as a taxi driver and his first book in English language, “Whoever Kills The Innocent” a fiction about the human condition entwined with today’s war on terrorism, inspired by several events in recent past. It’s a thriller about things that could happen every day, but it’s a message too, that hatred is never the right way and there is no order of God to fight each other.
He has published 3 Books in German language “ Gott aber schweigt“ , „Die Macht des Schicksals“ and „Und die da reden von Vergessen“. All are thrillers giving excitement and thoughtfulness to the reader.
