Hello and welcome to my Sugar Creek Gang site. My name is Rick Mannor. My wife Sheila and I are both computer programmers, and we live in Northern Michigan. I grew up reading the Sugar Creek Gang books and have rediscovered them as an adult. I was surprised to learn that the original versions were released in hardcover. Over the last several years I have been collecting the older books, and trying to find out as much as I can about Paul and the series. I have made many new friends through my research, including several members of the Hutchens family, and I even spent some time at the real Sugar Creek. I hope this site will be a useful resource for fans of all ages.
