Charles Ramsey Signs Book Deal With Publisher To Tell Heroic Rescue Story
The man who famously put aside his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive in a Cleveland house over a decade has signed a contract to publish his memoirs.
Charles Ramsey signed the deal with the Cleveland publisher David Gray & Co. on Thursday.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight and Berry’s 6-year-old daughter escaped to freedom May 6.
Collaborating as Ramsey’s co-author will be freelance writer Randy Nyerges.
The former U.S. Senate staff speechwriter co-wrote “Day of the Dawg,” with former Cleveland Browns defensive back Hanford Dixon.
“What you saw on TV doesn’t even begin to tell the story,” Ramsey said in the company’s announcement of the signing
Says the publisher:
“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 does not yet have a title, will be published next spring.
“He’s completely unfiltered,” Gray said, according to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/1dvRJZt). “I think that’s part of his appeal. He says what he thinks. I am really intrigued by him — as a person, with the story he had to tell, and with his ability to tell it.”
Hopefully Charles will use some of the profits from the book to get his grill a remix, Lord knows he needs it.
