David Baboulene Ph.D., is an English Academic, story consultant, and author of humorous travel books, children's Illustrated stories and academic works on story theory.

Life[edit]

David Baboulene was born in Kenley, to the south of London, UK. He attended Oxted School in Oxted, Surrey, but dropped out at the age of 16 to undertake an apprenticeship in the British Merchant Navy. His experiences from his work on cargo ships are documented in his books Ocean Boulevard [1] and Jumping Ships,[2] which recount his adventures around the world.

In 2003, Baboulene won the Euroscript Film Story competition[3] - a Europe-wide competition sponsored by the European Film Commission. The first prize was to work with a professional scriptwriter to develop the story into a full screenplay. His interest in story theory developed from this point, leading ultimately to a Ph.D. for his research into Narrative Theory from the University of Brighton in 2017.

Baboulene has subsequently written two practical academic works on Story Theory: The Story Book (2010),[4] and Story Theory (2014),[5]
