Our Story


Abby, Toby, and Billy are ordinary detectives with extraordinary clients: G-G-Ghosts! 

In the spirit of Nancy Drew, Scooby Doo and Stranger Things, The Fantastic Phantasmic Detective Series follows the paranormal adventures of three youthful sleuths and their gruff and grumpy medium as they tackle ghostly cases in the small mid-western burg of Morton Town U.S.A.

Book 1: The Rebel Realm

 It's just another summer day of hunting frogs for twelve-year-old Billy, Abby, and Toby, when they stumble upon a deserted lake cabin and meet Mary, a real live ghost, searching for her lost locket. The trio offer to help her find it and the Fantastic Phantasmic Detective Agency is launched.


But when the youthful sleuths enlist the help of the grumpy medium, Mr. Monsento, to help them with their second case, locating a ghost's missing ghost brother, a mysterious visitor from the UnderWorld appears. Soon the agency is entangled in a conflict between rebellious spirits, undead Realm Walkers, officious OtherWorld Bureaucrats and traitorous UnderWorld Demon Ambassadors.


If you like your ghost stories with a twist and a dash of humor, you'll definitely enjoy this book.

Highly imaginative and downright entertaining, The Fantastic Phantasmic Detective Agency:And the Rebel Realm is a great start to the series--Self-Publishing Review

Book 2: The Woebegone Oddity of the Underworld

The Fantastic Phantasmic Detective Agency is back with two new cases from the afterlife to solve!

First, the agency is hired to retrieve a ghost cat from a nearby pet cemetery; a simple enough request.  Or so it would seem. But when your clients are from the spirit realm, nothing is ever as easy as it appears. Soon the youthful sleuths and their reluctant medium, Mr. Monsento, are tangled up in a case involving magic charms, talking ghost dogs, and shape-shifting witches.

Next, the UnderWorld bounty hunter, Zeaflin, reappears, seeking assistance in locating an escaped UnderWorld prisoner so he can offer the unfortunate soul asylum in the OtherWorld. Another straight-forward request...right? But when dealing with the UnderWorld, deceit and betrayal go hand-in-hand and the detectives find themselves once again in the middle of a power struggle between the OtherWorld and the UnderWorld--and Zeaflin's fate depends on which side prevails.

The Fantastic Phantasmic Detective Agency And the Woebegone Oddity of the Underworld by D.L. Dugger is a hilarious, wonderfully wrought investigative novel with a setting that stretches beyond the physical world. It is a perfect blend of fantasy and adventure for young readers.
