Charles Ramsey, the Big Mac-loving Cleveland resident who rescued three women from Ariel Castro's basement of horrors back in May, has signed a book deal.

Ramsey was hailed as a hero when he helped free Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight from Castro's house, where he kept them imprisoned for nearly a decade. An auto-tuned version of Ramsey's post-rescue interview with local reporters then went viral, making him an Internet sensation in his own right.

But, the 44-year-old insists, there's a lot more to him and his life.

"What you saw on TV doesn’t even begin to tell the story," Ramsey told the Plain Dealer.

The memoir will reportedly tell Ramsey's story from before, during, and after the big rescue, and will be co-authored by freelance writer and former U.S. Senate staff speechwriter Randy Nyerges.

"Charles says outrageous things, but what a story he has," Nyerges told the Cleveland newspaper. "America doesn't know yet how truly brilliant this guy is… It's not an opportunity to cash in on celebrity. He really wants to tell his story and to say things he wouldn't have a platform for, under other circumstances. He is not someone the media normally would pay attention to."

Ramsey's book is slated for a spring 2014 release.

Castro was sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison for kidnapping, raping, and imprisoning his victims. He committed suicide in his jail cell in September.
