A family court judge, Gordon â€œBubberâ€ Jenkinson spent thirty-three years as a trial lawyer before ascending to the bench. During that time, he witnessed clients resorting to voodoo to affect the outcome of their trials and used these experiences as groundwork for his first novel. With a reputation as an outstanding trial lawyer, he practiced as a public defender, as well as extensively in family court, and handled appeals to the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Supreme Court.
He has previously served on the South Carolina Coastal Council and is a past president of the Williamsburg County Bar Association and the Williamsburg County Chamber of Commerce. He has also served as chairman of the following boards and commissions: Williamsburg Academy, architectural review board for the town of Kingstree, beautification commission for the town of Kingstree, and the Williamsburg County board of voter registration.
Jenkinson has been involved in residential real estate for more than twenty-five years and has renovated four historic houses in downtown Charleston. He is the author of St. Albans Episcopal Church: A Short History of a Small Mission, published by St. Albans. This publication was used to compel the South Carolina department of archives and history to erect a historical marker on the grounds of the church.
Jenkinson received a BA in English from the Citadel and a law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law. The son of an attorney, he entered private practice with his father and brother after being honorably discharged from the reserves as a captain. Although he has lived in a small South Carolina town nearly all of his life, his travels have led him to thirty-one different countries.
