A lifelong resident of the Carolina Lowcountry, William P. Baldwin is an award-winning novelist, biographer and historian. He graduated from Clemson with a BA in History and an MA in English. He ran a shrimp boat for nine years, then built houses, but the principle occupation of his life has been writing.
His works include Plantations of the Low Country; Low Country Plantations Today (both with architectural photographer N. Jane Iseley); the oral histories Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden; and Heaven is a Beautiful Place. The screen play for the latter earned him a Silver Remy at this year’s Houston Film Festival.

Charlotte Jenkins, chef and owner of Gullah Cuisine in Mt. Pleasant, SC, has been cooking Gullah foods since she was nine years old. It wasn’t until she moved to New York and started entertaining guests in her home that she realized there was something special about her Gullah culture. In 1997 she opened Gullah Cuisine. She and her husband also operate CJ’s Catering Service.
Jenkins, a 1988 graduate of Johnson & Wales School of Culinary Arts, learned that opening a restaurant was risky business, but she gave it a shot. The Washington Post, NY Times, Gourmet and Southern Living have all tapped into what’s going on in the kitchen at Gullah Cuisine. Jenkins says its “food that speaks to ya!”
