Ming began her career as Script Executive at independent Zenith Productions, working across a slate of film and TV drama; she was production script editor on series such as HAMISH MACBETH, and later wrote for EASTENDERS, CASUALTY, HEARTBEAT and THE BILL.
Following a career break to care for her mother (who has dementia), she has returned to the industry with a focus on original work for stage, screen, and radio. Her original drama THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID, starring Lia Williams and Siân Phillips, aired on BBC Radio 4, 11 May 2017, and won Best Radio Drama at the Writers’ Guild Awards 2018.
Ming also writes, speaks, and campaigns on dementia and carer issues (e.g. BBC Woman’s Hour, Victoria Derbyshire, ITV News, The Guardian, The Times, UK Dementia Congress, The Alzheimer’s Show, Joseph Rowntree, Mental Health Foundation, BBC Wales, Westminster Social Policy Forum).
She is available for journalism and factual commissions, as well as drama.
