José Leon Machado nasceu em Braga no dia 25 de Novembro de 1965. Estudou na Escola Secundária Sá de Miranda e licenciou-se em Humanidades pela Faculdade de Filosofia de Braga. Frequentou o mestrado na Universidade do Minho, tendo-o concluído com uma dissertação sobre literatura comparada. Actualmente, é Professor Auxiliar do Departamento de Letras da Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, onde se doutorou em Linguística Portuguesa. Tem colaborado em vários jornais e revistas com crónicas, contos e artigos de crítica literária. A par do seu trabalho de investigação e ensino, tem-se dedicado à escrita literária, especialmente à ficção. Influenciado pelos autores clássicos greco-latinos e pelos autores anglo-saxónicos, a sua escrita é simples e concisa, afastando-se em larga medida da escrita de grande parte dos autores portugueses actuais, que considera, segundo uma entrevista recente, «na sua maioria ou barrocamente ilegíveis com um público constituído por meia dúzia de iluminados, ou bacocamente amorfos com um público mal formado por um analfabetismo de séculos.»
