i have 3 references with the same author and year. How should I go about referencing them, in what order do they need to be and is it okay if they all have the same in-text reference or do i need to differentiate in some way?

Hi

If you are using two or more works by the same author, published in the same year, distinguish them by adding a, b, c and so on after the year, both in-text and in your reference list. For example (Dickinson 1990a) and (Dickinson 1990b). In your reference list, works by the same author, in the same year, are ordered alphabetically by their title: the year of the first one then gets an "a", the next one a "b", and so on if necessary.
