    Question Help finding a book series

    In the '90s the wife brought home a couple of SF books I really enjoyed that were written by a female author. After we read the books she gave them away and didn't buy the complete series. I don't remember the name of the author or the books. They were about dragons that were shape shifters and lived in caves if I remember correctly. I believe the dragons were friends with witches but elves were the evil overlords who controlled the cities. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I'd like to re-read the books we had and buy the complete series but I don't know what to look for. My gray matter is failing me. Thanks all.

    My knowledge of dragons and female authors begins and ends with Ursula Le Guin. Perhaps this question would be better posted in the fantasy section of the site?

    Dragons + Female author

    sounds like Anne McKaffery

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonriders_of_Pern

    I haven't read any and probably would not regard them as science fiction.

    Sorry guys about posting in the wrong forum. I'm old school SF. There wasn't a "Fantasy" category when I started reading it. I'll check out the two authors mentioned. Thanks.

    Possibly The Elvenbane by Norton and Lackly.

    The Elvenbane was a great series. I remember reading it about seven years ago. Still have it on my bookshelf in fact. If you enjoy reading those books, you can probably try The Outstretched Shadow, also by Mercedes Lackey.
