Michael Cox attended Wellingborough Grammar School, later graduating from St. Catharine's College, Cambridge in 1971. He studied English and had intended to be an academic, but he instead signed a contract with the record-publishing group EMI, making two albums and several singles early in the decade under the pseudonym Matthew Ellis on the Regal Zonophone label. He also subsequently recorded an album for DJM and singles for various labels as Obie Clayton.

Cox dedicated both of his novels to Dizzy Crockett, whom he married in 1973. They later had a daughter. In 1977, he joined Thorsons Publishing Group (later part of HarperCollins). Cox's first book was a biography of M. R. James, a Victorian ghost story writer, and this was published in 1983 by Oxford University Press. Between 1983 and 1997, he compiled and edited several anthologies of Victorian short stories for Oxford University Press, the first two co-edited by R. A. Gilbert.
