Juror B37 in the George Zimmerman trial has abandoned her plans to write a book about the experience.

In a statement released Tuesday by literary agent Sharlene Martin of Martin Literary Management, the woman wrote, "I realize it was necessary for our jury to be sequestered in order to protect our verdict from unfair outside influence, but that isolation shielded me from the depth of pain that exists among the general public over every aspect of this case.

"The potential book was always intended to be a respectful observation of the trial from my and my husband's perspectives solely, and it was to be an observation that our 'system' of justice can get so complicated that it creates a conflict with our 'spirit' of justice."

According to Fox News, the woman, a mother of two, is in her 50s and has lived in Seminole County, Fla., for eight years. She has been married for almost 20 years to an attorney who worked with United Space Alliance, a NASA contractor on the space shuttle program.

Martin told the Wall Street Journal that the decision not to go ahead with the book "was joint."
