Sharlene Martin is the president of the company Juror B37 will be publishing her book under. The Martin Literary Management president made a statement saying:

“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.”.

Juror B37 is described as a white woman who spends her time as a volunteer for animal rescue. She is married to an attorney and has two adult children. She said she and her husband used to have concealed weapons permits. During the last round of questioning for her spot on the jury, she said she had an issue with the type of weapons people are allowed to carry. She also thought weapons’ training was inadequate for people seeking permits. “It should become harder,” she said.

The juror will continue to be anonymous until further notice.
