CLEVELAND, Ohio — Charles Ramsey, the man who helped free Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, has signed a deal to write a book of memoirs about his life.

On May 6, Ramsey helped free the three women who had been kept in captivity for nearly 10 years in the Seymour Avenue home of Ariel Castro. Berry’s young daughter was also freed.

Castro later died in prison; his death was ruled a suicide.

According to a press release from Gray & Company, the book will cover his life before, during and after the rescue.

Ramsey will have a co-author: Randy Nyerges, who wrote another book with Cleveland Browns defensive back Hanford Dixon. They’ve been working together on the book since early December, according to the release.

According to the release, Ramsey will talk about the day of the rescue, living next door to Castro and what it was like to become an instant celebrity.

The book will be published in the spring of 2014.

    This is just capitalizing on a tragedy,
