Short biography
On his writing technique:

"I just sit at the typewriter and curse a bit."
in Collier's 31 August 1956.

Christopher Buckley writes in The Daily Beast: Wodehouse was born in 1881, the year of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and died on Valentine’s Day in 1975, the year the Vietnam War ended. Rather a lot went on in between.
He became world famous by his 30s, both as a novelist and Broadway lyricist. As a young, hustling writer, he banged out copy for The Saturday Evening Post, Vanity Fair, and Collier’s. His signature valet, Jeeves, made his debut in The Saturday Evening Post in 1915. . . Wodehouse was graphomaniacal, churning out stories, novels, and librettos at a dizzying rate. He did boast a bit about that in his letters, but he was rightly proud of his output: 40,000 words of a novel in two weeks; an 8,000-word golf story in two days. In a letter to the satirical novelist Tom Sharpe, he reveals that he wrote the last 26 pages of Thank You, Jeeves in one day. . .Wodehouse had fallen in love with America on his first visit in 1904, an experience he described as “like being in heaven without having to go to all the bother and expense of dying.” He became a citizen in 1955 and spent the balance of his formerly hectic life in relative peace and quiet in Remsenburg, Long Island, where he banged out novel after novel, did his Daily Dozen exercises and six-mile walk, cuddled with his Pekes, quietly despaired of the coarseness of modern culture (while writing for Playboy), and become addicted to soap operas.
