Michael Harling grew up in rural Columbia County, New York. He graduated from Ichabod Crane Central High School and attended Columbia-Greene Community College. He was—at various overlapping intervals throughout his early life—a civil servant, stand-up comic, husband, father and member of a fundamentalist religious cult.

After moving to Britain in 2002, he published three books of humorous essays about life in the United Kingdom. His first novel—Finding Rachel Davenport, a humorous crime caper—was published in 2012.

He lives with his wife in a picturesque market town in Sussex.
