Well, lo these many Moons ago, say 1983, I was a big fan of Anne McCaffrey. I think I read and owned everything she wrote up through the very early nineties. Turns out, that was my first introduction to Elizabeth Moon, in her collaboration on Sassinak. Which I own.
Along the way, perhaps 1998, read Elizabeth Moon’s Deed of Paksenarrion. I don’t think I made the connection with space marines at that point.
Then in 2009 or 2010, I grabbed one of the Serrano or Vatta books from the library, and it was time for fun reading. This inaugurated my ‘Babes with Blasters’ list, which is of course ironic yet enthusiastic fun for me. Familias Regnant universe
