Juror B37, one of the six female jurors who found George Zimmerman not guilty for the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, has signed with Martin Literary Management to write a book about the trial, GalleyCat reports.

The statement from agent Sharlene Martin, president of Martin Literary Management:

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.

The agency said that "it is not known whether they will participate in any media at this time or decide to reveal their identities" given the controversy surrounding the case.
