Charles Ramsey Signs Book Deal
On May 6, 2013, Charles Ramsey helped three women and a child escape a Cleveland house. Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, and Amanda Berry were kidnapped and held captive in that house, with Berry having been held captive for 10 years, giving birth to a child fathered by her kidnapper.
“What you saw on TV doesn’t even begin to tell the story,” Ramsey said. Now, Ramsey gets a chance to put the entire story in writing.
Randy Nyerges, who has co-written a book with former Cleveland Browns defensive back Hanford Dixon and served as a Senate speechwriter, will coauthor the book with Ramsey.
“Charles says outrageous things, but what a story he has,” Nyerges said, according to Gray and Co.’s announcement.
Ramsey and Nyerges have been collaborating on the book since the beginning of December. The book is scheduled to be published in spring 2014. Michelle Knight has a book scheduled for release around the same time. Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus are set to document their experiences in a book that is due out in 2015.
On August 1, 2013, kidnapper Ariel Castro was sentenced to life, and was found hanged in his cell on September 3, 2013. His death was ruled suicide.
