Juror B37, who was part of the jury during the murder trial of George Zimmerman, has signed with Sharlene Martin of the Martin Literary Agency in hopes of landing a book deal.

A book deal has no been announced yet, but a statement issued by Sharlene Martin says Juror B37 would write a proposed book with her attorney husband, reports

In her statement, Sharlene Martin said: "My hope is that people will read Juror B37’s book, written with her attorney husband, and understand the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial and how important, despite one’s personal viewpoints, it is to follow the letter of the law."

"It could open a whole new dialogue about laws that may need to be revised and revamped to suit a 21st century way of life. The reader will also learn why the jurors had no option but to find Zimmerman not guilty due to the manner in which he was charged and the content of the jury instructions."

According to, during pre-trial jury interviews, Juror B37 referred to Trayvon Martin as "a boy of color" and claimed to hate the media, but apparently that "hate" does not include books.

Juror B37 also said her only source of news was the "Today" show and added: "Newspapers are used in the parrot's cage. Not even read. It's been so long since I even read one. The only time I see 'em is when I'm putting them down on the floor."
