Remember Charles Ramsey? The man who helped three women escape from a Cleveland home where they had been held captive for over a decade? He recently signed a contract to publish his memoirs about the event.
Ramsey signed a deal with Cleveland publisher David Gray & Co last Thursday. Freelancer Randy Nyerges will help Ramsey write the book as a co-author.
Ramsey is credited for helping bring Amanda Berry, her six year-old daughter, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight to freedom on May 6, 2013. Ramsey wants people to know the truth behind what really happens, which he says has not been fully captured by the media.
“What you saw on TV doesn’t even begin to tell the story,” Ramsey said at the announcement of the book signing.
Ramsey and his co-author Nyerges reportedly began working on the book in early December, the publishing company said. Ramsey, who has been employed as a dishwasher, plans to work on the project full-time.
“Charles says outrageous things, but what a story he has,” Nyerges said. “America doesn’t know yet how truly brilliant this guy is.”
The book, which is currently untitled, is expected to be published in spring 2014.
