One of the anonymous jurors in the George Zimmerman case has signed with an agent to write a book, according to Galley Cat.
 
The author -- known only as Juror B37 -- has chosen for the moment to remain anonymous.
 
Her agent Sharlene Martin hinted that she might try to continue to remain anonymous, declining media requests to promote the book. 

The project was announced by Martin, the president of Martin Literary Management. She did not say when she would take the proposal or full manuscript to market or if she had already received interest from publishers.

Court records describe Juror B37 as a middle-aged white woman with two daughters (24 and 27) who had a concealed weapons permit but let it expire. Her attorney husband continues to hold a concealed weapons permit, according to ABC News. 

"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," Martin said.

"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."

Martin is a casting director turned iterary agent who opened her own shop in 2003.
 
Since then, she has done deals for a number of books tied to high-profile criminal cases, including the Goldman family's If I Did It about the O.J. Simpson case, Honor Bound by Raffaele Sollecito about the Amanda Knox case and the upcoming Picture Perfect: The Jodi Arias Story by Shanna Hogan.
