Resources for Trinity of Bitches

As a former journalist, I try to get my facts right even if it’s fiction.

To me, the real rock stars are the hardworking #actuallivingscientists who illuminate the awe-inspiring natural world that supports our existence. A big shout-out to the global community of animal scientists who are doing ground-breaking work to allow us to more clearly see the other animals in our world. The animal science and animal cognition used in the plot of Trinity of Bitches Series is up-to-date at the time of publication, but research is ongoing in this burgeoning field.  My apologies if new findings supersede what’s written here. Any errors are entirely mine. Yes, I did take a slight liberty in saying all dogs are descended from three mother wolves, but when I began this novel scientists believed that, too.

I consulted so many studies and articles that I’m sure I’ve missed listing some. Below is a partial list of scientists, researchers, and books that I’ve relied on. Apologies to anyone left out.
