Returning to her parents’ birthplace in 1994, Pamela Nomvete became a household name as Ntsiki Lukhele, “the bitch”, on a South African soap opera called Generations.

But the mirage of luxury and success in which she lived was just that, a mirage. Behind closed doors, she battled her husband’s infidelities, addiction, and spiritual confusion.

Dancing to the Beat of the Drum details the traumatic personal crisis Pamela went through as her success grew – a crisis which took everything she had worked for from

her – and how she came to re-evaluate her priorities and reconnect with the spiritual side of her life, something she had long neglected.

Pamela Nomvete was born in Ethiopia to South African parents. At the age of 14 she went to a British boarding school and went on to graduate at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama specialising in acting. Her career as an actress spans over thirty years, both in the UK and South Africa. In 1994 she visited South Africa for the first time and ended up living there for seventeen years. She returned to the UK in 2007. She continues to work as an actress and has developed a passion for writing. Her faith as a Nichiren Buddhist has enabled her to see the world as a beautiful playground of personal and universal growth.

    This book has been life-changing for me. Pamela Nomvete takes us on a raw journey of sheer authenticity and vulnerability. There are many layers of the human experience told in this book, which Pamela does with such ease for the reader. She truly tells it all with alternate names so befitting to the characters.

    This read offers a life-changing perspective on various fronts …themes of heartache, deceit, betrayal, fake friends, prodigious success, humiliation, and deep loss. This book is inspiring, heartbreaking, moving, and angering all at the same time. Have read it more than 5 times and each time I’ve seen a different side to her, in how her vulnerability seeps through.
