Casey Layne

Casey Layne

Casey is represented by Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency.

Casey grew up on a dirt road outside a small, Southwest Alabama town where fishing and four-wheeler riding were a way of life, but only while wearing lip gloss! Some of her favorite hometown memories include graduating high school as valedictorian, being a 5-time state champion gymnast, UCA All-star cheerleader, Girls State rep,  state drama winner and ambassador to the Hugh O'Brian Youth Foundation World Leadership Congress, but the best was seeing all the stars glittering over the family pond.

She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Alabama with a BS in Business Management and Minor in Dance.  The highlight of her career at Alabama (ROLL TIDE!) was graduating in the Top 1%, being a featured dancer for Louise Mandrel concerts and winning Miss University of Alabama.  She also has had the honor of being a NASCAR spokesmodel. Casey received her Master of Business Administration from the University of Mobile, also as a Summa Cum Laude graduate, and now has a day job in sales.

A former competitor in the Miss USA and Miss America pageant systems, Casey is now a certified Miss America judge and sought after pageant coach with over twenty years experience. She has worked with hundreds of students, but her predominant clientele competes in Miss Teen USA/Miss USA, Miss America, Mrs. America and Distinguished Young Woman (Jr. Miss). Taking her image consulting business to the next level, Casey has worked with Nashville recording artists, including choreographing a headliner concert. On occasion, she also works as a professional model, actress, and pageant emcee.  She has appeared in print, film and television, including the major motion picture Oculus.

In her spare time (*cough*),  Casey enjoys taking a "seriously hard" advanced jazz class and spending time with her two children. She works out constantly to compensate for her addiction to sweets and is addicted to the The Hallmark Channel.
A member of Romance Writers of America, she has presented Pitch Perfect and Developing Your Author Brand workshops at several international literary conferences including Romantic Times Booklovers Conventions. Under a different pen name, Casey is an award-winning author of mainstream contemporary romances. As Casey Layne, she writes young adult novels and the BACK ALLEY PUPSTERS children's picture series, along with co-author Cedar Jordan.
