I'm an author, singer-songwriter, and an event developer.

I'm the prettiest.

From my author website, "Jeff Mach Writes" -

Jeff Mach is:…the Amazon bestselling author of “There and NEVER, EVER BACK AGAIN: Diary of a Dark Lord“, a darkly-satirical, blackly humorous fantasy novel, as well as two collections of short stories (“Villains, Villainy, and Villainpunk”, and “I Hate Your Time Machine”.  He’s also the monstrous mastermind behind Evil Expo, the convention for Villains, happening this February in New Jersey. Jeff’s been writing for over thirty years now, and still can’t make it through an entire introductory paragraph about himself without remarking on how odd it is to discuss yourself in the third person.
Dark Lord Jeff Mach writes a lot of microfiction, short-short fiction, and brief poems which twist into strange little stories. He’s particularly fascinated by villains and villainy, monsters, dystopias, fairytales gone awry, and the entire world of things ordinarily considered to be Evil, Wicked, Iniquitous, or Simply Not Done. He particularly dislikes White Wizards, Witch-Hunters, Mobs, and anyone whose idea of a discussion is reaching for a pitchfork.
ABOUT JEFF MACHWherever Creatures of Shadow gather, they speak of Jeff Mach. Granted, what they generally say is, “Who IS that guy, and why are we talking about him, anyway?” Jeff is the creator of the first Steampunk Rock Opera, “Absinthe Heroes”.  He’s been a practicing musician for over three decades years (although, to be honest, for the first decade, he was terrible), and has written a number of song cycles and musicals. In 2017, he wrote “Beneath”, about the relationships between humans and monsters.
Jeff Mach invented and ran The Wicked Winter Renaissance Faire, The Geeky Kink Event, The Steampunk World’s Fair, The International Steampunk City, The Midsummer Magick Faire, The Anachronism NYC, Halloween in December, and numerous other events whose goals were to bring unusual people together.
According to the Lore, Jeff is forty-four years old and lives in Hackensack, New Jersey, with the company of his collection of several-thousand books, almost all purchased at bag sales for about a quarter a piece. He loves giving used books a new home. He prefers writing longhand, and then editing as he types things up.
Jeff’s writing influences include Neil Gaiman, Ursula LeGuin, Daniel Pinkwater, Douglas Adams, and Terry Pratchett.
If you have heard about me through the online mobbing attacks on my life, please see my statement on these allegations.
