Question Anne's use of first person

Has Anne written any else besides Nerilka's Story in first person? I don't believe there are any other novels, but perhaps among her numerous short stories?

I'm probably going to have to start researching this myself, to satisfy my sudden random curiousity, but on the off-chance any knows without checking I thought I'd ask!

The YA novel "Black Horses For The King"

The short book "If Wishes Were Horses"

Isn't "Diversity of Dragons" in first person?

Most of the romances:
"Ring of Fear"
"The Mark of Merlin"
"A Stitch in Snow"
"The Kilternan Legacy"

Not "The Lady", and I haven't read "Year of the Lucy."

Stories: There are two I can remember, in TGWHD: "Duty Calls", and "The Greatest Love".

Are you sure? I've only read it once but I don't remember that. Can someone confirm this?

No. Carradyne Touch/Lady is definitely 3rd person throughout. Although the narrator has a definite "voice".
