More than Just Words

Wordsmithing for Dave Letterfly Knoderer began in the eighties with colorful copy for marketing his mural painting skills to an emerging demographic leaving behind contemporary life to launch themselves into the itinerate RV lifestyle. Dave created captivating ad copy using references to the romance of the road, the excitement of being on an adventure and explaining the passion that occurs while exploring faraway places using the same painterly techniques that captured the illusion of form, spaciousness and an inner emotive feel in his vibrant paintings.

Moved as an author, Letterfly began manipulating ideas, concepts and feelings into words that capture, motivate and introduce the reader to the elusive concept of inner propulsion, the instinctual rite of passage and the hidden power that drives our lives through the linear concept of time, the spaciousness of this universe and the extremes of our emotive environment.

These ideas, introductions and concepts were just the beginning of his rhetorical musings. These reflections have gathered momentum and have resulted in an incredible upcoming book;

When an intensely creative, frustrated teenager turns his back on his family, he discovers a fascinating world under the traveling big top. Dave quickly finds himself thriving in this creative oasis, drumming for the live shows and even painting decorative art on the circus fleet. Longing for more, he dreams about entering the spotlight.

His growing affinity for the animals trained to perform amazing feats leads Dave into an unforgettable mentorship. Guided in kindness, partnership, and harmony between man and beast, he is empowered to train his own six-horse liberty act and enter the center ring at last.

But the rise to stardom includes excesses that nearly cost Dave his life. And it’s in this low point that he is left behind by his pseudo family, stranded in a foreign country—broke, ashamed, and quickly forgotten. With nowhere else to turn, he makes his way to his parents’ new home, where he discovers a surprise haven among the abundant charismatic commune full of back-to-nature hippies, discarded ministers, suffering veterans, family rejects, and unlikely hopefuls of every type.

Welcomed into the fold with open arms, Dave tastes the benefit of humility for the first time as this new family encourages him to open up and find a practical relationship with an upgrade from the God of his youth. As he comes into perfect alignment with a higher purpose and seeks harmony with guidance from above, Dave unveils the gift he had been searching for that was within reach the entire time.

Armed with a new design for living life, the inspired artist picks up the pieces and makes a triumphant return to the circus. There, he builds a fresh connection with his surroundings, cultivates even brighter aspirations, and shines with a radiant vigor like never before. Now all he needs is a new act.

“The smartest thing I ever did was run away and join the circus”

Dave Letterfly Knoderer

Dave credits his experiences as a teenager with the circus for teaching him how to travel. He goes on to explain that traveling is more than just getting into the car and going somewhere. While immersed in making one-day-stands with the old time big top circus a special oneness with the road, a new relationship with time and the resulting connection with his surroundings became almost Zen-like.

It is a fact that today, many men and women are dreaming of a future that includes living, loving, working and traveling in an RV. Hit the road and thrive promises to serve this portion of an emerging demographic by providing a functional step by step portal through which readers will find the answers to their longing to hit the road and a practical manner of living the life of their dreams.

More than Just Living an Interesting Life.


What makes a great story? How about a behind the scenes peek that reveals the romance of being on the road, the excitement of going headlong into the unknown and the emotional tension of coping with disastrous incidents that obstruct the momentum of this colorful life, gleaned first-hand from actual experiences on the circus?

Have you ever pondered living a life filled with extensive travel, experienced the excitement of wondering what is around the next bend and became completely immersed with the idea of doing fascinating things in faraway places? Have you witnessed a kaleidoscopic multiple horse liberty presentation under the big top, evidence of hours of patient training, laughed at the antics of a little mule who seemingly outwitted his befuddled and cantankerous clown trainer during a performance at the circus? Have you been awestruck while watching a man riding a high-stepping, dancing-prancing, trained to the upper-level Haute E’cole horse?

Dave began to write stories about the questions he had as a child, lessons learned on the road of life, the value of becoming an alcoholic, how sinking into the depths of depression and hitting rock bottom placed him on a firm foundation for rebuilding his life based on a personal relationship with a loving essence and learning to use the gifts we have been given in the way they were intended.    Over the years, Dave accumulated enough material for one book – and then two. And, he is still writing. Then, he wanted to do more.

“When the road of life curves ahead…lean into it!”

In his first book Speedy hurled through havoc adventure, excitement and interesting possibilities are waiting for you. From the safety of your arm chair, you will read about the glamourous, exciting and often dangerous world of the circus. Also revealed is the devastation that dropped him into the depths of despair that ultimately introduced the foundation where he found his true purpose, a restoration to a love for his father and usefulness to others that facilitated his new rise into stardom.

Today, Dave’s mission is to inspire, teach and entertain, so you too can open the door to your heart. Your heart has something to say. If you are not listening, perhaps these stories of adventure, creativity and hope will help open the door for you to follow your heart.

Following his dream led straight into his greatest challenge

What makes a young man abandon everything to head out on the highway? Using the road as a metaphor, the author reveals reflections, discoveries and notions of an interesting life that took off like a rocket when he followed that inner urging and hit the road.

This on the road memoire reveals the surprise twists and turns of an interesting life that ultimately led to love. As the future without the circus unfolded, the author evolved into the premier producer of airbrushed murals, gold leaf monograms and delicate hand painted inscriptions on motorhomes using the skills learned on the show-business trail.  

Today Letterfly is a renowned motorcycle pinstripe artist, speaker and spiritual seeker in the modern world of gigabytes, impulsive distractions and emerging societal insanity.

Confessions of a Galloping Snapper

Imagine living life in the spotlight, the intensity of performing on a classically trained dancing horse in the center ring, the feeling of approval by vast audiences all across North America … and it all stops. Desperate, impoverished, and alone, a young circus performer with artistic tendencies finds himself at the end of an era with nowhere to turn… or so it seems. In desperation, astride two very different worlds, he must find a solution but doesn’t know where to turn.

This is the true story about taking a gamble, being guided by happenstance, navigating the pitfalls of new territory, and how grace intervened to reveal the uphill climb he was uniquely qualified to trudge, but only after meeting certain rigid requirements found at the devastating conclusion of his old alcoholic life.

Designed to inspire the reader, this memoire reveals the surprise twists and turns of the rise of a traditional pictorial artist and sign painter with a passion for classic horsemanship that reveals the nuance of these specialties now gone from the mainstream. You will read about the traditional gold leaf gilder with one foot in the Renaissance who took the time to encourage the creativity of a budding artist, how the animal trainers of the circus culture influenced an uncanny connection with his horse and when a gifted spiritual mentor appeared to guide his mind, hand and heart to promote oneness with his surroundings and introduce purpose for his life. Plus, you will learn how the principles of recovery transformed the echoes of a hurtful past into a reason to reach out and find ways to be a blessing to the world.
