Paul Hutchens (April 7, 1902, Thorntown, Indiana – January 23, 1977, Colorado Springs, Colorado) was an American author. In addition to writing The Sugar Creek Gang, a series of 36 Christian-themed juvenile fictional books about the adventures of a group of young boys, he also wrote numerous adult fiction books, many with a romance theme.[1] [2] The author was a graduate of Moody Bible Institute. The Sugar Creek Gang books have been popular in evangelical Christian homes and have remained in print through multiple format and cover art changes.[3] The books were also dramatized on the radio.[4] His books were originally published by WM B. Eerdmans, and later reprinted by other publishers such as Van Kampen Press and Moody Press.
