Her UK premiére dramatisation, Kira, from the novella Kira Georgievna by Viktor Nekrasov, aired on BBC Radio 4 on 2 April 2023, and her two-part dramatisation of A Many-Splendoured Thing by Han Suyin went out on R4 in November/December 2023 and is available on BBC Sounds.

Other credits include EastEnders, Casualty (BBC TV); Heartbeat,The Bill (ITV); comedy drama Riot Girls: Male Order(BBC R4), and commissions for LAMDA, RADA, Leeds Playhouse and Theatr Clwyd.

Of Chinese/Welsh heritage, Ming wrote Citizens of Nowhere? for Chinese Arts Now (Southbank Centre & Edinburgh Fringe), exploring roots and identity in Brexit Britain. Its central character, aspiring Tory politician Jane Lo, inspired short film British People, commissioned as part of The Uncertain Kingdom anthology (BFIPlayer, Amazon, iTunes, Curzon Home, GooglePlay, 2020).  She wrote short play Nine Point Two Minutes for Theatr Clwyd's Curtain Up post-lockdown reopening season, August 2021.

Ming has also worked in TV drama development, script editing series such as Hamish Macbeth (BBC) and co-creating detective drama McCready and Daughter for Ecosse Films/BBC Northern Ireland.  Her play, Exhumation, written on the Royal Court Theatre Writers’ Group, was workshopped there with director Lucy Morrison. In 2019, she was Writer in Residence at Theatr Clwyd, which sponsored her on Sphinx Theatre's Sphinx 30 programme 2020-21, a main stage play seed commission.

Inspired by her experience with her late mother, who lived for over twenty years with dementia, she authored the blog (Dementia Just Ain't) Sexy, and writes, speaks, and campaigns on dementia and carer issues.
