I thoroughly enjoyed the two books - it's been a while since I've been so entertained. I was disappointed to find that she (I assume female) only has 2 books so far, but look forward to more.
She did have a nice list of "chickpunk" authors that I am going to look into - http://chrismoriarty.com/chickpunk.html
since I already liked Elizabeth Moon. I have a huge wishlist now and definitely not enough time to read them all.
