McDevitt joins Jenny Brown Associates

Bob McDevitt, previously publisher of Hachette Scotland, has joined leading Scottish literary agency Jenny Brown Associates.

McDevitt is based in the agency's primary office in Edinburgh, though the company has also established a second office in Corbridge, Northumberland, where fiction and sports writing specialist Mark Stanton is now based, as the agency develops "new opportunities in the north of England".

McDevitt, who has also worked at Waterstones and Ottakar's and left Hachette Scotland in November last year, will be representing commercial fiction, crime writing and non-fiction.

He will be JBA's sixth associate, joining Lucy Juckes, Allan Guthrie, Kevin Pocklington, Jenny Brown and Stanton.
